New song – Dragonette, ‘Live In This City’
The new single from the forthcoming Dragonette album Bodyparts is out, and it’s catchy as hell.
Called “Live In This City”, the song follows the same electro-pop blueprint as the band’s break-out hit from 2010, “Hello”. That song helped the band shake the “Toronto chick-fronted band that’s not Metric” label, which has never plagued Dragonette but which sounds like it might have.
A collaboration with Martin Solveig, “Hello” hit the top 10 in over 30 countries and helped win the band a Juno Award.
Bodyparts, the Toronto-based band’s third album, will be released Sept 25. Other tracks include “My Work is Done”, “Let It Go” (the first single, which the band performed on Good Morning America, that hotbed of new music), “Ghost” and “Rocket Ship”.
Dragonette is Martina Sorbara, Dan Kurtz, and Joel Stouffer. The group’s previous albums are Fixin to Thrill (2009) and Galore (2007).
