Scandinavian quartet Little Dragon helps us regain our sanity amidst the madness we deal on a daily basis with their new single “Lover Chanting.” Built on an exhilarating canvass of bass-coated indietronica and trimmed with elements of R&B, “Lover Chanting” is an intricate dance ballad that lets your neurons cool off and booty take over. Stream below:

“For all the lovers out there, chant along! Dance for peace and unity in this world of madness!” shared lead singer Yukimi Nagano.

“Lover Chanting” is from the band’s upcoming EP with the same title that will be out on November 9th via Ninja Tune. In regards to the EP, Yukimi addesd that it is about “The force of love. Not only between two people but the force of love in this universe as the ultimate ecstasy. Whether that is while you’re dancing at a disco forgetting where you are or just staring at the moon on a clear night, it can be anything. A swim in the ocean, a glance at a stranger–it’s a personal individual thing. Call it what you want but we have all felt it. So, embrace the great mystery of everything that your brain can’t grasp and lose track in the most beautiful sense.”
