A little something different - I am now going to feature more than just Ninthwave music...

I loved their last album (see below) and really like this new track... reminds me of the Modern...
Turns out they are Canadian
Sorbara and Kurtz met at a music festival and formed a duo named The Fuzz, making music together in their basement recording studio for fun. The duo formed Dragonette after these initial recordings, and supported New Order on only their second live performance. In 2005, the band released the Dragonette EP, prior to signing a record deal with Mercury/Universal.

Dragonette relocated to London to record debut album Galore, and toured the UK supporting local acts, including Basement Jaxx and Sugababes and played headline gigs in small venues across the UK and Canada. British musician Will Stapleton replaced Simon Craig on guitar following the relocation. Dragonette filmed two music videos, one "Jesus Doesn't Love Me" and another for "I Get Around". The former video leaked onto the internet, while the other served as promotion for their first single release. Despite the promotion from the band, "I Get Around" entered the UK singles chart at #92, disappointing the band members. A further single release, "Take It Like a Man" fared no better, not even reaching the Top 100 on the UK Singles chart. Dragonette did however receive some airplay of a cover of Calvin Harris' hit single "The Girls", which was re-titled as "The Boys". "I Get Around" was released in the band's home country of Canada where it outperformed the UK release, peaking at #57.
