Little Dragon at Terminal 5

My friend invited me to see Little Dragon with opening bands Donn T and Javelin and DJ sets by ?uestlove at Terminal 5. The show was sold out and luckily we managed to get ourselves to the front of the packed crowd.

I did not know what kind of music to expect having never heard their music – now I am embarrassed by that fact – and I thoroughly enjoyed their synthy soul sound. It was clear that all the girls in the audience had serious crushes on lead singer, Yukimi Nagano, and rightly so. With a soulful voice, she dances onstage like a robot manikin, making slight yet sharp movements to every beat. She also throws in the occasional pony step and plays percussion on the cow bells, a synthesizer, and a tambourine. The other members of the band seemed pretty cool too.

All in all, I love the electro soul sound of Little Dragon.
