Playlist: Dragonette

Dragonette

Dragonette

It’s not always about the girls, but sometimes it is.

The lovely Dragonette have put together a playlist for us called “Indietronica – an indie pop girls only mix”.

Listen below!

Santigold – Can’t Get Enough Of Myself (feat. B.C)
I was told that this song was inspired by an Iranian disco song from the 80’s. I’ve been listening to a lot of world music and I love how well they mashed this up. So unique.

Lucius – Born Again Teen
I feel deeply in love with Lucius’ first record. There are so many awesome songs on this new one of theirs Good Grief. But I’m choosing “Born Again Teen” on our playlist because i think its such an strange arrangement. Where’s the chorus!? I don’t know! Who cares?

Dua Lipa – Be The One
Every time I go back to London to work with other musicians I learn about artists who are up-and-coming over there. Last time I was there it was Dua Lipa. Maybe everybody already knows her but I just discovered her and I love the vibe of this tune.

Niki & The Dove – Coconut Kisses
Niki & The Dove’s The Drummer is one of my favourite indie pop albums of all times. I’ve been waiting a long time for their follow up. It almost reminds me of Empire Of The Sun. But with Stevie Nicks‘ voice.

Christine And The Queens – iT
My friend showed me this song the other day, I don’t know anything else of theirs. It’s the beginning of a new love I suspect.

Petite Meller – Barbaric
I think she’s a style genius. We played a show with her in Florence and I drank her up like pink lemonade.

Sounds like: Niki & The Dove, Charli XCX, Gwen Stefani, Icona Pop, OH Land, Little Boots, Girl Friend

WDL – Stardust ft. Elliphant

WDL

Sweden is on our radar, yet again. This time it is a new electronic project called WDL by Johan Wedel.

Having already done remixes for the likes of and Tove Lo, ‘Stardust’ is his new single. A trip-hop, jazz-funk-infused cut that uses strings, lazy piano and shuffling percussion to exquisite effect, the track is beautifully elevated by WDL’s collaboration with Swedish vocalist, lyricist and songwriter Elliphant.

Watch the atmospheric video below:

‘Stardust’ is out now on iTunes through TEN/Sony Music.

Sounds like: Little Dragon, Nordic Giants, DJ Yoda, The Avalanches, Dragonette, FOXTROTT, MØ
