Little Dragon

A good friend has been raving about these since we met a year ago, but I didn't get round to listening to then until a week or so ago...and I'm in love. A band of four based in Sweden, consisting of Swedish-Japanese singer Yukimi Nagano (vocals, percussion) and her close high-school friends Erik Bodin (drums), Fredrik Källgren Wallin (bass), and Håkan Wirenstrand (keyboards). They have two album out, Little Dragon and Machine Dreams (which i have been listening to repeatedly) and a third to follow later this year...Woop!
 I love the mix of down tempo mellow lovely niceness which her voice swims through and the up beat bits/song in which you can't help but wiggle to. I am told that on stage Nagano has the most amazing energy and i wait with baited breath for their next tour.
