Little Dragon debut “Strobe Light”

Little Dragon debut video for "Strobe Light".

Little Dragon have released, their new video for “Strobe Light” off their newest album Season High. The clip was filmed in Johannesburg, and follows beautiful cross-dressers across picturesque South African visuals, exploring the taboo the region still holds around the topic. Kristin-Lee Moolman masterminded the creation, alongside frequent collaborator and stylist IB Kamara.

Kristin-Lee Moolman & IB Kamara muse, “We wanted to make a film that celebrates two dancers from Johannesburg and that feeling of being young and creating your own universe within your environment and being able to express yourself in any shape or form.”

The setting was an easy choice, as South Africa is intricately woven into it the band’s DNA. Lead singer Yukimi explains, “Both Nabuma Rubberband and Season High have moments inspired by South African music. It all started with Erik, who is married to a South African, coming home from his visits with a hard drive full of mixes and tracks of South African house. We started listening to his favorite tracks on the road, the fatness and the groove combined with the electronics had us hooked. Having the ‘Strobe Light’ video made there felt like the perfect place. Somehow we feel like our music is truly understood there.”
