Little Dragon’s fourth LP Nabuma Rubberband gives this unique quartet the spotlight they deserve cross culturally, emulsifying a uniquely honest and fervid approach.
Having mastered the working dichotomy between eloquent strings, lingering chords and full usage of synthesizers over Yukimi’s dense vocals, Little Dragon delivers a solid LP, leaving listeners guilty for not sharing.
Tracks such as “Cat Rider,” “Killing Me” and “Klapp Klapp” give the album variety with the familiar dance feel listeners are used to coupled with trip-synthop and down tempo sounds. Nabuma Rubberband differs from their previous work in that the album maintains a confident, pensive tone with more soulful tracks than electro-dance specific sequences.
For me, this album is where finely tuned execution meets uncharted edgy consistency for the band.
Nabuma Rubberband is where switching it up works for listeners that enjoy Yukimi’s vocals and the very best of the band’s sultry execution of drums (Erik Bodin), keyboards (Hakan Wirenstrand) and bass (Fredrik Wallin).
