Biography

It’s been three years since Toronto-based Leftfield popsters Dragonette put out a full-length album – an eternity in Pop years. Though they’ve hardly been idle in that time.

The touring around 2012 LP “Bodyparts,” coupled with their smash collaborations with French DJ Martin Solveig, saw them almost constantly continent-hopping, sometimes swinging from Paris to Manila in a single weekend. They did tours of the US with Major Lazer, Miike Snow and The Presets, played to a packed mid-day tent at Coachella, graced festival stages on five continents, and saw more of their native Canada than they had in their now decade-long history as a band.

After a bit of depressurization, the band hit the studio, not only working on new material for themselves, but also collaborating with top-flight electronic music producers from across the planet. Though many of these have not yet been released, their work with Dutch Producer Mike Mago, “Outlines,” hit the Top 20 in over 10 countries, including scoring them their first UK Top 10 hit. Their work with US beatmaster Big Data has been synched 10 times in its 5 weeks in public, most notably in the high-profile trailer for the upcoming Entourage Movie. One of two collaborations with Swedish hitmakers Galantis, “Peanut Butter Jelly,” is burning up the US radio charts as we write this, and looks to possibly be their most successful pairing to date.

All this work with other people has provided fresh fuel for the Dragonette mothership. They’re currently putting the finishing touches on their as-yet-untitled fourth album, and “Let The Night Fall” is the first taste of that work. An anthem to overnight euphoria informed by their appearances at numerous dance festivals, the song segues perfectly from their work with Dance Music’s brightest lights into Dragonette’s more complex world.
