DRAGONETTE - LET IT GO
Submitted by Clubsguide on June 26th 2012
Off the back of 2 huge live shows at Coachella this year, Canadian pop royalty Dragonette prepare for the release of their third album ‘Bodyparts’ with the release of the first single: ‘Let it Go.’
Proving once and for all what die hard fans have known since 2005 – that together they are so much more than the sum of their separate parts: Dan Kurtz and Martina Sorbara are married, songwriters, business partners, best-frenemies, co-conspirators, hometown sweethearts and a mass of cultural contradictions all rolled into a single tasty, tangy pop package - who glow with a combined energy that’s both forward-looking and nostalgic, homely and cutting-edge. Drummer Joel Stouffer fits into, and adds to, this energy perfectly.
Already lighting up the blogs, the original version of ‘Let it Go’ and the Laidback Luke Remix both went to the #1 spot on Hype Machine, making for the band’s eleventh straight #1. While Martina's unique vocal will be familiar to anyone who loved the Martin Solveig collaboration – ‘Hello,’ the pulsing beat and easy, energetic melody of ‘Let it Go’ are distinctly Dragonette.
A straight up anthem with ‘hands-in-the-air’ verses and a fist-pumping chorus – ‘Let it Go’ has had recent support & spins by BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac.
