“NightLight” – Little Dragon

Today’s track is the first single off of Little Dragon’s upcoming “Ritual Union.”  These guys and gal are one of my favorite bands at the moment – I really love their mix of electronic and pop with jazzy overtones.  “NightLight” is a great song to groove to with upbeat percussion and quick lyrics.  It also features really unusual, organ-like synths.  I don’t really know how else to describe this sound, thoughts?  Yukimi Nagano’s unique, high-pitched yet ethereal voice is highlighted quite nicely as well.  The sample I’ve chosen jumps in about half way through and features a nice combination of these elements.  We hear the tail-end of the darker bridge, and jump into the high-strung chorus.  Looking forward to the new album in July – you’ll be hearing more from it I’m sure!
