Grammy-nominated Little Dragon’s new album Season High—the first new music from the band since their acclaimed 2014 album Nabuma Rubberband—saw its long-anticipated release on April 14th 2017. Discussing the process behind recording Season High, vocalist of the Swedish four-piece Yukimi muses, “We have grown through the years but the making of this album has been a struggle. As much as our band is based on a deep friendship, we are four strong wills who find it really frustrating to compromise. We have gotten better at that though, but it’s still a real battle. It gets harder and harder for us to make records but we still love it. Sometimes it feels like we have 100% passion and life or death emotions yet there’s a pointlessness with everything. We want to exist in our own bubble where we can stay curious about sounds. The magic feeling that sounds can sprinkle over any boring day is what got us all hooked, that feeling of escapism.” – Press release

“Fittingly for an album that contains a song called ‘The Pop Life’, Little Dragon really bring the hooks here. With its refrain of “let love drip”, ‘Celebrate’ is a sexy blend of Prince and ’80s Janet Jackson. ‘Should I’, a midtempo electro rush, comes off like a freaky Pet Shop Boys-Neneh Cherry mash-up. And the breathy dance-pop of ‘Sweet’ is so cute and catchy, it could almost be a more experimental Kylie Minogue hit.” - NME

“When Little Dragon focus on their forte of blending brooding, gossamer synth washes with Yukimi Nagano’s breathy, sensuous vocals, as on “High” and “Don’t Cry”, the results are blissful; while the striding electro grooves of “Strobe Light” and the punchy paean to ambition “Push” offer a more active alternative. And when the two combine, as on the irresistible “Sweet”, the result is bleep-tastic boudoir electropop for Clangers.”
