Canadian Electronica Trio Dragonette Drop Fierce New Single, Remixes
"We came at this record wondering ‘How does this whole writing thing work again?’ Do we actually know how to do this part of our job? Are we ever going to write another song?’, and so on. But now somehow, miraculously we have a whole album's worth of songs that we all love and can't wait to unleash on stage and in stereo.”I'm glad they sorted things out. The album promises to be filled with "the most raucous songs" the band has ever written, with some of the "most emotional and delicate songs" thrown in for balance. Sounds like something worth waiting for, doesn't it?
Since crashing onto the scene in 2005, Dragonette has toured with pop and rock heavy hitters such as Duran Duran, New Order, the Sugababes, collaborating on hits from Basement Jaxx, Cyndi Lauper, Nicola Roberts, and Don Diablo. Their music has featured in hit TV shows like Grey's Anatomy, The Hills, Gossip Girl, and The Vampire Diaries and popular ad spots for big brands like Toyota, Macy's, Triden and Sony Playstation. With all of this commercial exposure, why don't more people know about Dragonette? Well - hopefully after this new album, people will start to take notice.
