On the heels of 2014’s acclaimed full-length Bodyparts which landed them a captivating performance on Good Morning America as well as collaborations with Kaskade, Galantis, Big Data, Martin Solveig among others, Canadian electro-pop trio Dragonette have made a valiant return with their fourth studio album Royal Blues to be released worldwide on November 11.

Strapped with a joyous energy yet tinged with melancholy undertones, the record is perfectly timed to keep listeners warm while the winter months creep in. “Body 2 Body” is a bass-driven silky lovesick banger that touches upon the universal struggle of letting go. Directed by Alison Honey Woods with dance and improvised choreography by Alex Crenian and Miles Faber, the “Body 2 Body” lyric video is posted below for you to check out.


Royal Blues is an irresistibly hook-laden, dancefloor-ready celebration of wisdom that only comes from life experience. To celebrate the release, the band will embark on a 22-date North American tour making stops in Boston, LA, Chicago, Portland, Toronto and more. Be sure to catch the powerhouse pop trio live in a city near you!

Tour Alert: The Presets, Dragonette and Classixx

conspiracykeanu-whoa

This May, The Presets and Dragonette come together for an extensive co-headline across North America. Although coming from opposite sides of the world (Australia and Canada respectively), both share recognition globally for their electric live shows – hailed by audiences and critics as infectious, dynamic and irrepressible.

The Presets tour this May in support of their recently released album Pacifica. Featuring ten prismatic, synth-laced songs, Pacifica ventures boldly into new, uncharted musical territories, traversing both light and shade in energy and emotion.

Fresh from US dates with Major Lazer, Dragonette will be showcasing material from their latest long player Bodyparts. From emotion-packed ballads to fist-pumping anthems, Bodyparts fuses heavy-hitting electro rhythms with pulsing beats, and sing-along choruses.

The Presets captured the world’s imagination with their blitzkrieg sophomore Apocalypso. Spawning five hit singles and Triple Platinum sales in Australia, Apocalypso set dizzying new heights for dance music in Australia. The single “My People” is the longest charting Australian single in ARIA chart history. Pacifica is following suit – acclaimed Album of The Year in a dozen Australian publications, and the single “Ghosts” recently awarded Single of the Year (Readers’ Choice) for at the 4th annual Australian Rolling Stone Awards.

Dragonette has also racked up an impressive list of accomplishments in the past year: a JUNO Award win for their hit single “Hello,” a live performance on Good Morning America, and a second JUNO nomination for Dance Recording of the Year for Bodyparts.

The bands will be joined in most markets by acclaimed LA duo, Classixx, performing tracks live from their upcoming debut Hanging Gardens, a svelte selection of impossibly sunny grooves, expertly crafted for road trips, pool parties and dance clubs (All shows except Salt Lake City, Phoenix and San Francisco).

Video: Dragonette – “Run Run Run”

Those who are familiar with Dragonette’s latest album, Bodyparts, know that album opener “Run Run Run” is a slow, synth-heavy cut with booming percussion and sincere lyrics that show a more vulnerable side of the album. Today, the band shares a video for the track, which follows lead singer Martina through crowded, yet lonely, city streets. Juxtaposing glamorous metropolitan lights with dark, gritty cityscapes, the video explores the high and lows we’ve all felt.

New: Dragonette – “Rocket Ship”

Canadian electro-pop trio Dragonette is preparing to release their third studio album Bodyparts on September 25th. Along with recently released singles “The Right Woman” and “Let It Go,” the Toronto band has revealed new album track. “Rocket Ship” is a groove-worthy track with a pulsating synth line. Singer Martina’s lyrics and hungry vocals add a layer of sensuality to the track with lines like “I want you to pin me like a poster to the wall.” “Rocket Ship” is just a glimpse into Bodyparts, an anthemic album of edgy electronic dance rock music that the group is notorious for.

Dragonette has teamed up with Talenthouse for a fan-challenge to create a version of the band’s album track “Untouchable” based on the provided lyrics alone, before hearing the band’s version! Among other great prizes, the winning entry will be the official b-side to a future single. Add music, do it as poetry, make it a film – whatever you like – make it yours!
