LITTLE DRAGON TO EMBARK ON U.S. TOUR

Little Dragon will be touring the United States, with dates starting in San Diego and including stops at the Roxy in Los Angeles and Le Poisson Rouge in New York. Little Dragon features radiant vocalist Yukimi Nagano and her close high school friends Erik Bodin (drums), Fredrick Källgren (bass) and Håkan Wirenstrand (keyboards). They are four friends that met approximately 10 years ago and who have lived side by side more or less ever since. All were born and raised in Gothenburg, Sweden (that hotbed of diverse and escalating musical talent including Jose Gonzales, Love Is All, and Jens Lekman) except Hakan who derives from the deepest darkest woods of Smaland.

Little Dragon is the name of the experiences and longing of an inspired group of musicians, and it’s the naked joy of creating something that’s new, being happy, laughing, making crazy sounds. Sorrow and abandoning stuff. The sadness of every party, and the party inside every sadness. Little Dragon takes tired musical traces and styles, give them a shot in the arm to leave us with something fresh and positive. The self-titled debut, out last year on Peace Frog, is full of subtle touches, capturing fleeting emotional moments, twinned with gnawingly memorable pop flourishes and hooks. Oh, and it reminds us of endless summer possibilities.
