LITTLE DRAGON SHARES NEW SINGLE

Little Dragon has shared the third single “Let Go,” from their fourth upcoming album Nabuma Rubberband.

As lead singer Yukimi Nagano explains, the new album has a different feel to previous Little Dragon albums. “When you put some of Janet [Jackson]’s really slow stuff on you feel like you’re floating. That feeling really influenced me and maybe that’s why there are quite a lot of slow jams on the record. The intention was about whatever we felt strongly about.” Nabuma Rubberband will be in stores on May 13th via Loma Vista Recordings.

After recently opening for Charli XCX, Bastille and The Neighbourhood, Brooklyn-based trio Little Daylight will play Los Angeles tonight at the Troubadour with Terraplane Sun and Flagship as part of The Three Of Clubs Tour.

The group has also revealed the video for their new single “Siren Call,” the first taste from their debut album Hello Memory (out  Summer 2014 via Capitol Records). The track showcases a darker side of the Brooklyn trio’s electronic and pop elements by incorporating a heavy bass line, atmospheric guitar riffs, and a frenetic tempo to their synth melodies, while lead singer Nikki Taylor harnesses both bold and whispering vocals.

SKY FERREIRA NEW MUSIC VIDEO

Sky Ferreira has revealed a new video for her latest single, “I Blame Myself,” off her full-length debut Night Time, My Time (Capitol Records).

Ferreira explains, I had so much fun shooting this video in Compton because I got to work with director Grant Singer again. All the clothes in the video are from SSENSE and it was hard to pick what to wear since they have so many of my favorite designers.” Check out the video above.
