Little Dragon on Their Slow and Steady Rise

Art-pop band Little Dragon recently released their fourth album Nabuma Rubberband, their highest charting LP to date. And although the Swedish four-piece have been together for 10 years now, they credit their recent success to a "slow and steady wins the race" mentality.

"It's been very gradual," lead singer Yukimi Nagano told Fuse at Bonnaroo last weekend. "It doesn't feel like anything has changed. Slowly, but surely. It's nice, people spreading the word."

As Fuse's Esteban Serrano points out, the slower jams on their new album were influenced by Janet Jackson, and the band reveals what types of feelings they hope their music invokes with their listeners.

"Maybe like a ting-a-ling, in-love feeling," bassist Fredrik Wallin said. "Whatever they feel like. We embrace all feelings." 

The band will be on the road for most of 2014 and hope to have some downtime in 2015, where they can start on some new projects. Check out the full interview above for this and much more!
