Little Dragon

Life can be full of its horns, scales and tales, but for Gothenburg, Sweden-based Little Dragon, the past year has been hotter than fire-breath. After releasing the acclaimed synthy trip-pop Machine Dreams in 2009, the foursome attracted the Gorillaz’ attention and were featured on “Empire Ants” and “To Binge” on the animated band’s 2010 release, Plastic Beach. Little Dragon opened as support for the second half of the Gorillaz’ worldwide tour. They lounged in five-star hotels and were chauffeured everywhere, a stark divergence from the frugal, DIY touring they’d previously known, says drummer Erik Bodin. Despite such spendthrift offstage activities and playing rapid-fire sets in massive arenas, they managed to keep the music true to their core beliefs. “Playfulness is a big part of our identity; that was the goal, even when we’d only have 25 minutes. We want to feel free,” Bodin says. Little Dragon w/ Laserfang $13 adv/ $15 day of TheUrbanLoungeSLC.com, 24tix.com
