About Little Dragon
Little Dragon is making a lot of noise, thanks to a well executed marketing campaign to promote the new single, "Klapp Klapp," from their upcoming album "Nabuma Rubberband."
Aiming to create an engaging user experience, the band has set up a website that asks you to enter your phone number so Little Dragon can relay "something really important." Then the band members "call you" from their home studio, with the audio from the calls synched with the video playing in your web browser. At the end of the performance, a link to purchase the single on iTunes displays on the website.
Billboard magazine led the high praise for the band and the ingenuity of the campaign saying, "In our pixel-washed world… it's never been more difficult for artists of any medium to make their digital outreach both personable and memorable. But Little Dragon did with a phone call (or four)." They went on to note that the calls were a "retro-futuristic example of how inspiration and creativity can be as effective a marketing tool as employing dollars and chasing attention via attrition."
No doubt, this Swedish trip hop band is riding high, but never more so than now. They are some seven years removed from their official self-titled debut album, but stayed in the collective conscious of fans with the follow-up "Machine Dreams" in 2009, followed by "Ritual Union" in the summer of 2011. The band has toured throughout Europe and is known for songs like "Twice," which was featured in the television show "The Vampire Diaries" and also in the movie "Magic Magic."
Their new LP "Nabuma Rubberband" is slated for a May 13, 2014 release.
