Little Dragon released a new album, Season High, back in April via Loma Vista. Now they have shared a video for “Strobe Light.” Kristin-Lee Moolman & IB Kamara directed the video, which features two dancers from Johannesburg and was filmed in the South African city. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Kristin-Lee Moolman & IB Kamara had this to say about the video in a press release: “We wanted to make a film that celebrates two dancers from Johannesburg and that feeling of being young and creating your own universe within your environment and being able to express yourself in any shape or form.”

Little Dragon’s singer Yukimi Nagano had this to say: “Both Nabuma Rubberband and Season High have moments inspired by South African music. It all started with Erik, who is married to a South African, coming home from his visits with a hard drive full of mixes and tracks of South African house. We started listening to his favorite tracks on the road, the fatness and the groove combined with the electronics had us hooked. Having the ‘Strobe Light’ video made there felt like the perfect place. Somehow we feel like our music is truly understood there.”

Season High is the follow-up to 2014’s Nabuma Rubberband and it was co-produced and mixed by Little Dragon and James Ford in the band’s hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden. Previously they have shared three songs from Season High: “High,” “Sweet,” and “Celebrate,” as well as videos for “Sweet” and “Celebrate.”
