Dragonette Shines on new electro-pop banger ‘New Suit’

Share

Martina Sorbara aka Dragonette laid down the foundations for modern electronic pop more than a decade ago with her chart-topping smash hit ‘Hello’ together with veteran French DJ / producer Martin Solveig, a heady mix of upfront house, synth-pop and funk-laden grooves. Her new single ‘New Suit’ out now through BMG, offers us an insight as to where Dragonette’s sound has evolved and pushes it into overdrive. A hybrid retro-futurist electro beat fused with present-day pop sensibilities.

The JUNO and SOCAN Award-winning artist describes ‘New Suit’ as a “power-pop pep-talk”, and a “mash-up of retro and contemporary sounds and imagery”, and the track serves as a much-anticipated first look at a forthcoming collection and Dragonette’s first full-length release since 2016’s Royal Blues. Also available is the stunning lyric visualiser for ‘New Suit’, a striking pop-art collage paying homage to stop-motion animation techniques.

Of ‘New Suit’ Dragonette shares, “The lyrics include classic words that are intended to ping-off digital era concepts. But at its heart, the song is about finding your way back to your power while the world keeps shaking up your life.”

With a career spanning over fifteen years, Dragonette has scored numerous global hits including ‘Pick Up the Phone’, ‘Let it Go’, ‘Tokyo Nights’ with Digital Farm Animals and Shaun Frank, ‘Outlines’ with Mike Mago, and the chart-topping ‘Hello’ with Martin Solveig, which garnered a JUNO Award win for Dance Recording of the Year. Collaborating with the world’s biggest DJs including Martin Garrix, Basement Jaxx, Kaskade, Galantis, and more, Dragonette’s musical diversity knows no bounds, and as a songwriter her credits include Keith Urban, Cyndi Lauper, Pretty Sister, and Carly Rae Jepsen with The Knocks among others.
 
Creative versatility shines across Dragonette’s four acclaimed studio albums, including Galore (2007), which earned Dragonette a JUNO nomination for Breakthrough Group of the Year. the JUNO-nominated Fixin To Thrill (2009), the JUNO-nominated Bodyparts (2012), and 2016’s Royal Blues. With global headlining credits too numerous to list, Dragonette has also supported the likes of Duran Duran, New Order, Ke$ha, and Miike Snow, and amassed major festival credits, playing to thousands of fans at Coachella, Electric Daisy Carnival, Glastonbury, and Lollapalooza. Now, with the release of ‘New Suit’, Dragonette moves into the newest chapter of her illustrious career, with more new music news to come later this year.
