BADBADNOTGOOD & Little Dragon Unite on “Tried”

blame it on Shake September 26, 2018

Well, well, well… what do we have here? A collab between Little Dragon and BADBADNOTGOOD?! Yes. Yes. And YES!

After admiring each other from afar over the last few years, the Swedish band and Toronto outfit have finally connected and the result is just as soulful and amazing as you’d imagine these two groups could conjure up.

After receiving a beat from BBNG in 2017, Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano took her time before laying her vocals.

“The simplicity of the music was there and writing on something that already felt together was a fun challenge,” Nagano told NPR. “The lyrics are about helplessness on a personal level, but also in a bigger way — as people chugging along numb feeling helpless in a world that sometimes feels lost of its compassion. Despite that feeling of despair, it’s written with an air of hope.”

Press play and vibe out below. Hopefully, this isn’t the last time these two get together, either. This is awesome.

The song is also available on all streaming platforms, so be sure to add “Tried” wherever you listen to music.
