Single Review: Dragonette, ‘Let It Go’

Canadian electro-pop group Dragonette are back in 2012 with an upcoming yet-to-be-titled album, and if the first single, "Let It Go," is any indication, there is much excellence to come.

Canadian electro-pop group Dragonette are back in 2012 with an upcoming yet-to-be-titled album and if the first single, “Let It Go,” is any indication, there is much excellence to come.

“Let It Go” is noticeably more radio-friendly than their previous work, with ear-candy hooks and bright electro synths. It’s a confident step towards wider appeal, following their first worldwide-breakthrough single, “Hello” (with Martin Solveig) in 2011.

The “Let It Go” remixes (released earlier this week) are even better than the original version — though obviously meant for the clubs. The Knocks deliver a poppier mix, while the harder-hitting electro long-form mixes come from Faustix & Imanos and Laidback Luke. The massive Laidback Luke mix is a highlight.
