Canadian 'basement pop' band Dragonette
-- whose infectiously bouncy track with Martin Solveig
, "Hello," will get stuck in your head in an instant -- are back with a new album, Bodyparts
, out September 25th and PAPERMAG is jazzed about exclusively premiering a new single from the LP, "Live In This City."
The band, comprised of husband-wife duo Dan Kurtz
and Martina Sorbara
, along with drummer Joel Stouffer
, wrote and recorded the album in London though Sorbara says "Live In This City" was "born out of a drunken haze at the stampede in Calgary" (if you're scratching your head a little, know that the "Calgary Stampede" is a huge rodeo and festival in Canada.)
The song features the band's high-energy electropop and a chorus that reminds us (in a good way) of Starship
's "We Built This City"
with a dash of The Go-Gos
. Listen to it below:
