LITTLE DRAGON

"Klapp Klapp"

Label: Loma Vista Recordings

Not much has changed for Little Dragon on its mind-altering new single, "Klapp Klapp" -- the Swedish electro-soul quartet continues to revel in psychedelic hooks and jazzy beats, with vocalist Yukimi Nagano crooning hypnotic, '90s R&B-styled lines. "The spirits blow around like a hurricane whip," she sings, "the girls don't mind my high scream drip." The lyrics may be cryptic, but the groove speaks volumes. -Ryan Reed
