there are some events in pop music that you (or rather, i) look forward for months, or even years in advance, as they come along like clockwork. girls aloud albums, for instance, have historically been a yearly affair coming in the october/november period every year, somewhat like an early christmas present. the strutting, bombastic return of dragonette, however, has caught me completely by surprise despite the fact that i have been re-visiting first (f*cking amazing) album ‘galore’ quite a lot recently.
a brief history lesson.
dragonette released one of the best albums of the decade, ‘galore’, way back in 2007 to much critical fanfare but much less than deserved sales. they are also brilliant live. end of.
anyway, below is the free and totally legal (!) album version of forthcoming single ‘fixin to thrill’ taken from an also forthcoming album with the same title. the song is full of dirty strutting synths, and it at once totally new and screams dragonette. AMAZING! INCENDIARY! I HAVE HEARD THE FUTURE AND IT IS THIS SONG!
YOU LITERALLY HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE FROM DOWNLOADING THIS RIDICULOUSLY AMAZING SONG! it is win-win, as they say.
there is so much good music out at the minute. i’m dying without my ipod!
