Little Dragon - New Me, Same Us [Limited Edition Orange Color Vinyl Record]
Little Dragon – the pioneering Swedish four-piece fronted by enigmatic vocalist Yukimi Nagano, with multi-instrumentalists Håkan Wirenstarnd and Fredrik Wallin on keyboards and bass respectively and Erik Bodin on drums and percussion – return with their sixth studio album, New Me, Same Us. Having played together since their school days in Gothenburg – where they'd meet up after class to jam and listen to records by artists like A Tribe Called Quest and Alice Coltrane – New Me, Same Us is the sound of a band going back to basics and falling back in love with their instruments: drums, bass, keyboards, harp, guitar, and voice, to produce some of their most focused and inarguably best music to date.
Entirely self-produced and recorded at their long-term home-built studio in Gothenburg, New Me, Same Us represents another chapter in the continuing evolution of Little Dragon, finding a new direction in their unique style of unhurried, off-kilter r'n'b, pop and electronics, they sound as rejuvenated and energized as ever. The record also finds them in a reflective mood, Yukimi's distinctive vocals musing on transitions, longing, and saying goodbye. Lead single "Hold On" is a message about breaking away and moving on, "Rush" is about yearning for a love now lost, "Another Lover" is described as a daydream of heartache.
