Records. Signing with Peacefrog Records enabled Little Dragon to release its first full-length self-titled album, Little Dragon
in 2007. The album was picked up by indie fans craving something new to come out of a Northern European country that has given
us ABBA, The Hives, Peter Bjorn and John and The Sounds. Although, there is something unique about the vocals sang by Yukimi
Nagano paired with the ethereal instrumental provided by the talented band. Machine Dreams, Little Dragon's sophomore album,
