Electro-pop powerhouse artist Dragonette, aka songwriter/producer Martina Sorbara, made a big splash a few years ago as a trio with major hits such as “I Get Around”, “Take It Like a Man” and stellar collabs with Martin Solveig, Kaskade or The Knocks. Now a solo act, Dragonette returns with the a new full-length album, Twennies, released through BMG.
On Twennies, Sorbara chose to work with one creative partner for the entire project—the Los Angeles-based producer Dan Farber (Dizzee Rascal, Lizzo). The two artists spent several weeks together holed up in Sorbara’s Toronto studio, where they wrote the majority of the record.
Discussing the album, Sorbara explains: “It’s a true hybrid of my original influences as a child and what I’ve learned along the way. It feels so representative of my musical journey.” She adds, “It’s my favorite thing I’ve ever done. I’m so proud of it.”
Creative versatility shines across Dragonette’s four acclaimed studio albums, including Galore (2007), which earned Dragonette a JUNO nomination for ‘Breakthrough Group of the Year’, the JUNO-nominated Fixin To Thrill (2009), the JUNO-nominated Bodyparts (2012), and 2016’s Royal Blues. Dragonette’s musical diversity knows no bounds, and as a songwriter, her credits include Keith Urban, Cyndi Lauper, Pretty Sister, and Carly Rae Jepsen, among others.
