Little Dragon announce new North American tour dates, share video for “Celebrate” — watch

on April 27, 2017, 10:21am

The latest album from Little DragonSeason High, finds the band fluidly gliding between different electronic genres. Alternative R&B tracks become jazz freak-outs and smooth pop jams slip into synth ravers on a dime. Album opener “Celebrate” twists effortlessly between ’80s synthpop and solid funk, the sort of constant change that’s reflected in the track’s video. Directed by Ossain Melin, the clip is a hodgepodge of imagery, from frontwoman Yukimi Nagano looking out over a nondescript city to a stabbed piñata bleeding neon green to a bunch of people just pointing at a floor. It’s all warped with psychedelic effects, meaning you’re never quite sure what you’re going to see next. Check it out above.

In addition to the new video, Little Dragon have announced an expanded North American tour schedule. Running mostly through August, the new dates will bring the band to Chicago, Boston, Cleveland, and New York City. Find their complete itinerary below.
