Little Dragon is a Swedish quartet that creates avant garde electronic pop that can best be described as hauntingly beautiful. Comparisons have been drawn to Fever Ray, The Knife and Portishead. However, Little Dragon have created their own niche and are gaining momentum with a recent appearance on the new Gorillaz album ‘Plastic Beach’ and spots at SXSW in March and Coachella festival later this month. The clip is for their track ‘Twice’ which is from their debut self titled album released in 2007, but is still one of my favourite tracks they have produced. Added to their eerie atmospheric and emotionally rich sound on this track is a simple yet captivating film clip. Their newer album ‘Machine Dreams’ was released last year and you can listen to more of that here.
