Single Review – Little Dragon – High 

Gothenburg’s electro-pop quartet are embarking on the release of their fifth studio album with the release of their new single ‘High’. ‘High’ will most likely feature in the follow up to 2014’s Nabuma Rubberland and is a chilled, steady track with hazy electronica, a warping bass line and a sharp beat accentuating it. Yukimi Nagano’s softly spoken vocal matches the musical furniture and from this subtle foundation, she can easily go on to reach high notes without sacrificing the soft edged, nudging progression of the song. An accomplished and well produced track from a group with a lot of confidence in their ability. It remains to be seen how this sound develops though.
