I stan for Little Dragon. This is a well known fact amongst my friends. So I’ve been waiting for new music from them! They’ve been teasing us over the past few weeks with cryptic messages, websites with flash video, and more. Finally, “Klapp Klapp” has arrived, and it’s every bit as evolutionary as it is funky. Little Dragon’s sound has progressed without folding in on itself, and if this song is any indication of the new album, I am ALL the way here for it!
Starting off with drums, the track quickly delves into the electronic and then we get hit with the trademark Yukimi vocal we’re used to. Ultimately, I don’t think I will be able to appreciate this song until I can just sit in front of some amazing speakers with a nice Scotch and cigar and do a dignified two step. I feel there are so many small aural touches that are amazing and that most people will miss on their Beats by Dre headphones.
Their new album Nabuma Rubberband is out May 13th in the US, and if you pre-order it now, you can get this track instantly.
