If you put aside acts like Robyn, The Knife and Swedish House Mafia, Little Dragon are probably the hottest export to have left Scandinavia in recent years. Having just toured Europe and the US, Little Dragon are bringing their idiosyncratic sound to a sold out show at our very own Brighton Dome.

Despite having formed almost 20 years ago, the band has only just started to emerge as a force to be reckoned with; especially as their unique fusion of trip hop/synthpop happens to be very en vogue.

Influenced by the likes of De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest, it’s no surprise that the Gothenburg natives have gone on to work with some of the industry’s most influential; including OutKast and Pharrell Williams as well as SBTRKT.

From underground favourite to global recognition, the group will be performing hits from their latest album, Nabuma Rubberband, such as ‘Paris’ and ‘Klapp Klapp’. They’re definitely the type of group who will leave a long lasting sonic, if not theatrical impression.

Little Dragon will be performing at the Corn Exchange in Brighton Dome, Monday 17th November. The show is unfortunately sold out.
