DRAGONETTE – RIGHT WOMAN (ElectroPop – Canada)

Canadian new wave revivalists Dragonette unveil their new track “The Right Woman”, the first taste of their highly awaited third album. It is featured on Diane von Furstenberg’s Women’s Day compilation Proud to be Woman Vol. 3 and all proceeds will go to an organization dedicated to empowering women worldwide.

Produced in collaboration with Felix Bloxson, who usually works under the Plastic Plates moniker, “The Right Woman” is Dragonette’s first original new track since the summer of 2010 (Our Summer/Volcano single). With its nice combination of punchy beats, glittering synths and sultry vocals, this song proves Dragonette are back in good form!

To celebrate this release, here’s a couple of Dragonette goodies: the first track is the band’s classic hit “I Get Around” remixed by Midnight Juggernauts, the second is a pumped up remix of “Pick Up The Phone” by Van She‘s own Michael DiFrancesco.

MIDNIGHT JUGGERNAUTS – THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY (Electro/Indie – Australia)

Hailing from Melbourne, Midnight Juggernauts are Andy Juggernaut, Vincent Vendetta, and Daniel Stricker. Andrew and Vincent  originally met in school and formed the band back in 2004. They released a couple of EPs together and were later joined by Daniel on drums. Their work met with a lot of success amongst their peers so the band kept working and, in 2007, they released their debut album Dystopia on their own label, Siberia Records.

Midnight Juggernauts’ music has been described as anything from ‘prog dance meets cosmic film scores’ to ‘slasher-flick disco’ to ‘deadpan landscape’. This incredible mix of influences has attracted a great variety of artists to work with them and the boys have had the opportunity to do remixes for Dragonette, K.I.M, Cut/Copy, Sébastien Tellier or The Presets.

Playing non-stop on my mp3 right now is “I Get Around” by Dragonette

This Canadian electropop four piece is great at crafting catchy pop songs with great hooks and this exactly what they did on their new single “I Get Around”. Uplifting, unashamedly pop and highly danceable, this is excatly the kind of music you what you wanna hear when you’re riding the metro and everyone around you looks sad and grey. Give it a try and you might end up dancing and singing in the metro very soon.

Dragonette - I Get Around     

The band consists of singer-songwriter Martina Sorbara, bassist and producer Dan Kurtz, guitarist Chris Hugget and drummer Joel Stouffer. Their first record, the Dragonette EP, was released in 2005, prior to signing a record deal with Mercury Records. Dragonette then relocated to London to record their debut album Galore and toured the UK supporting local acts, including Basement Jaxx.

The singles “Take It Like  A Man” and “I Get Around” performed quite poorly on UK charts but Dragonette did get some airplay with “The Boys”, a cover of Calvin Harris‘ hit single “The Girls”, and they also became a favourite of many electro blogs…
