Lonely Heart is the new single song by Canadian electropop band Dragonette which is expected to release via itunes by this friday may 27th 2016. The group are now sharing the new track “Lonely Heart,” whose sun-soaked melody accompanies risky but self-aware lyrics, keyed around singer-songwriter Martina Sorbara’s glazed declaration, “Love sucks.” The track is a classic Dragonette but this time with a some influences from reggae music all infused from their radio-friendly and joyful synthpop style.
When we started writing “Lonely Heart,” like most songs, we weren’t entirely aware of where it was leading us. But then, slowly, a kind of “covert sad song” started to form. On the surface it’s almost a party tune, but if you follow it more closely it’s quite melancholic. But I think it’s the kind of melancholy that most people enjoy feeling. The kind that keeps you interesting.
If this is a taste of what’s to come, the group’s (long-overdue) fourth LP is shaping up to be something special. With a reggae-tinged beat and a tropical synth-pop chorus, the track feels like summer anthem waiting to pop.
Release Date : May 27th 2016
