It's been three years since Little Dragon blessed the scene with an album, 2014's Nabuma Rubberband, and honestly, it has felt like much longer. The brilliant Swedish indietronica group's presence in the world of sexy night out, fashionista club grooves has always provided a sophistication to its extravagance that has been sorely missed.  More

ukimi Nagano's voice is a force of nature, but not in the way you might think. As the frontwoman for Sweden's Little Dragon, Nagano has a smoky, sultry R&B voice that is instantly recognizable. She's backed by a band that knows how to meld and shape minimalist electronica into the pop landscape, throwing in a good measure of classic soul.  More
