Little Dragon

This band just has a strange jazziness to it. Her amazing voice and the cool electronics just add to the need to listen more. It just grows on you.

Little Dragon consists of Swedish-Japanese singer Yukimi Nagano (vocals, percussion) and her close high school friends Erik Bodin (drums), Fredrik Källgren Wallin (bass) and Håkan Wirenstrand (keyboards). Oh, they are Swedish, BTW.

The band's name was inspired by the "Little Dragon" nickname Nagano earned due to the "fuming tantrums" she used to throw while recording in the studio. "It's a little exaggerated but there is some truth in it", Nagano said. "But we've grown up a bit and I realized you can't have a fit every day because otherwise you won't be able to stand each other."

They released their latest CD back in July, Ritual Union. Perhaps, you've heard "Twice" on Grey's Anatomy.
