KCRW Presents: Little DragonKCRW-FM

A few years ago, KCRW DJ Mathieu Schreyer introduced Little Dragon to a few of his fellow DJs and, next thing you know, it's topping our playlist charts. The best part of discovering a band like this early in its career is watching it grow; the new Ritual Union has been a real breakthrough for the Swedish dance-pop group.

Many might recognize singer Yukimi Nagano from her work with Koop or Gorillaz. With Little Dragon, she spearheads a soulful disco sound with utterly captivating enthusiasm. Here, she and the band perform songs from Ritual Union before a live studio audience at KCRW. —Jason Bentley, KCRW Music Director
