We saw Little Dragon at the Avalon last month and while I was mostly excited shake my booty to Ritual Union live, I was surprised to walk away with a new favorite song, Twice. Although it’s an older song, it was the first time I had heard it. Talk about an absolutely beautiful and totally haunting way to close out a sold-out show. While each band member can definitely hold their own, the lead singer Yukimi Nagano has such stage presence. She can dance around in sparkly spandex and then silence the room with her arresting voice. I love that “Little Dragon” was her parents’ nickname for her as a child!
Their latest album, Ritual Union, is one of my tops of the year and it’s the perfect soundtrack for a Friday.
