Little Dragon are touring Australia for the first time this December, supporting the Gorillaz and also playing three intimate headline shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
Based in Gothenburg, Sweden, Little Dragon are Swedish-Japanese singer Yukimi Nagano (vocals, percussion) and her close high-school friends Erik Bodin (drums), Fredrick Källgren (bass), and Håkan Wirenstrand (keyboards).
The band's name came from Yukimi nickname, earned in the recordings studios. She would often become frustrated during recording which earned her the nickname "Little Dragon". When the band decided on a name to go by, the nickname stuck.
