“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!
