Well, the video is rather mystifying (a touch of Angel Heart meets True Detective) so maybe just focus on the gorgeous sound. When I first heard ‘Klapp Klapp’ from Little Dragon I thought I was listening to Kelis. There is a similarity both in the vocalist’s tone as well as the synthy-psychedelicness of the track as a whole. I think Kelis is ace, so that is a very good thing as far as I’m concerned.
Little Dragon are in fact Yukimi Nagano (providing those lilting vocals), Erik Boden, Fred Wallin and Håkan Wirenstrand and are Gothenburg based. They are new to us, but the band came together in 1996 and are actually about to drop their forth album, Nabuma Rubberband, which I’m looking forward to hearing- as well as now Spotifying my way through their back catalogue.
