New single from Dragonette: Let It Go

Dragonette are pop's dirty secret - a superlative Canadian band with smart lyrics and catchy tunes who have been waiting on the sidelines for far too long. Competition, their ode to stealing another girls's boyfriend, is one of my favourite pop songs of the last 10 years, and not just because the video features dancing lipsticks.

Their luck could be about to change, however, thanks to the help of tiny French DJ and Madonna cohort Martin Solveig. He put Dragonette's singer Martina Sorbara on his worldwide hit Hello, and its follow-up Big In Japan which was, ironically, only big in Japan (and Belgium).

So now, all eyes will be on the band as they prepare their third album for release. Wisely, the first single, Let It Go, maintains some of the club energy of the Solveig tracks. According to the press release, the accompanying album "include the most raucous songs they've ever written and the most emotional and delicate songs they've created". Martina adds, "I think the overall feeling it gives is clap-happy cheerful mayhem." Hmmm....

Here's the single. It's a bit heavy on the treble, but if you twiddle with the EQ on your iPod, you'll find your feet-a-tapping.

The song's out on Sunday. Dragonette's new album is coming soon.
