The Swedish band announced their new EP ‘Opening The Door today’, and to say that the first single “Frisco” is good would be an understatement. This dreamy synth track is reminiscent of Little Dragon’s earlier work, and we can only hope that the rest of the EP is just as good. Keep your eyes peeled for September 16th when Opening The Door drops, we’ll definitely be listening!
Little Dragon – Frisco.
Since their inception, Little Dragon has been known for their experimental sound, great collaborations and superb music. And their latest single is no different. “Frisco” blends elements of soul, house, and pop to create a summery sound that is both catchy and relaxing. The minimal instrumentation lets the cool beat take center stage, while the lyrics about liberation and spontaneity resonate with listeners. In a time when we all could use a fresh start, “Frisco” is the perfect song to help us escape the heat and dance our worries away. Little Dragon has once again created a signature sound that is sure to get stuck in your head.
