It sounds like Little Dragon is again embracing the throwback ’80s sound on their forthcoming third album, Ritual Union. At least, that’s what we are hearing on its latest leak, “Nightlight,” which pairs Yukimi Nagano’s smooth vocals with bouncy electronics. I’m still sitting here wishing that they would make some more jazzy material, such as what was heard on their self-titled debut. But “Nightlight” is admittedly solid, so it’s time to work on my two-step and stop complaining.
Stream “Nightlight” below. Ritual Union drops this July. Oh, and according to FADER, Little Dragon has been working with Big Boi. We can’t wait to hear what comes of their studio time.
