NEW Dragonette MP3: We Rule The World
This is a stormer. A (legal) new track from Dragonette's forthcoming CD, Fixin' To Thrill, which has a brilliant Jean-Paul Goude-ish cover - the one I posted last week.
These guys live a kind of endless youth through their music. It channels memories of being young, when everything was full of possibility. Cliched, I know, but true. Every once in awhile I have an evening like that, where I make eye contact with everyone I see on the city streets and feel completely confident. Happy in the moment. Dragonette's music soundtracks those feelings...
Dragonette We Rule The World MP3
We've got the super hero costumes,
Know how to change our clothes in a phone booth
So let's pretend that we all rule the world.
Track 7 on the new CD, this begins with an All Through The Night-ish intro line and takes off quickly into a guitar/ electropop epic with pinging synths and a trademark massive chorus (their "shiny secret weapon" as usual).
If you haven't seen their new video for Pick Up The Phone, it's proper brilliant. Dragonette's one of the few bands to give a shit about making quality videos these days, and the song is one of the finest of 2009.
