Little Dragon - "Underbart"

New MusicContributor JonesComment

When it comes to being stalked and held captive, I think we can all agree that it's an experience we'd leave rather than take. And the wrinkly, green-haired character in Little Dragon's new "Underbart" video is so physically unsettling that I think he'd be the last on my list of people to stalked by. The beat slowly evolves from atmospheric synths to claustrophobic percussion, highly reminiscent of LCD Soundsystem's "Someone Great." The way the song utilizes its space, or eventual lack thereof, greatly enhances the video's ever growing sense of dread, and will certainly leave you wonderfully.
