Recently, Swedish electronic quartet Little Dragon released a new single, “Tongue Kissing,” and announced a big world tour! That tour includes a stop at 9:30 Club on Wednesday, April 15, 2020, and tickets went on sale today.
The new track is four minutes of glittering, off-kilter pop, which sees frontwoman Yukimi Nagano muse on embracing life’s challenges head-on. “The song is very much about taking brave steps,” the band said. “Facing your own demons and tongue kissing with life in a way, not holding back but going all in with all that it entails, every moment in your face.”

The Swedish downtempo group collaborated with Flying Lotus on his track “Spontaneous” earlier this year and, in 2018, shared their Lover Chanting EP, which was released to widespread support and described variously as “dance-driven, R&B-flavored” (Rolling Stone), “loved-up synth-pop” (NME), and containing their “signature deep synth basslines and exuberant vocals” (FACT).
Little Dragon is a singular band who are never content to rest on their laurels. “Tongue Kissing” follows a career of forward-thinking albums — including breakout Ritual Union and the GRAMMY-nominated Nabuma Rubberband — as well as an impressive, diverse list of collaborations with equally groundbreaking artists like Gorillaz, SBTRKT, BADBADNOTGOOD, Flume, Kaytranada, De La Soul, DJ Shadow, Tinashe, Mac Miller, Big Boi, Faith Evans, and more.
