Bodyparts is the third album from this Toronto band, with the two earlier releases full of dance tunes, ballads, funk and retro pop. This new offering is produced and polished and ready to show the world what this talent has to offer to its fans and fans to be.
The band’s repertoire includes a host of impressive collaborations with the likes of American DJ Kaskade and French producer Martin Solveig. Most recently, the band worked with Solveig in 2010 to release the joint-effort dance track “Hello.” The single made a huge splash globally, catapulting the band into the limelight amongst a flourishing electro-dance music scene. In the aftermath of the fame wrought by the success of “Hello,” Dragonette has attempted to stay close to their roots of writing and producing dance music with both style and substance while appealing to a larger, more universal audience.
In Dragonettes’ Bodyparts, (Universal Music Canada)the band hopes to balance their historically synth-laced, underground dance-pop sound with the influential pop aesthetic so prevalent today. Lead single “Let It Go” certainly succeeds in this task, featuring a catchy, danceable, and most importantly accessible, hook alongside the youthful vocals of Martina Sorbara and Dragonette’s signature synth-lines. Needless to say, in the post-“Hello” era, the band would also love strike a chord with pop music fans everywhere and showcase a sound they proudly call their own.
A tour in support of the new CD release kicked off in Vancouver on Sept. 29 and ends in Ottawa’s Babylon on Oct. 20. Watch out for this band on tour and let them show you their ‘Bodyparts’.
