Lucky Dragons makes the best sort of dance music because of course it's not dance music, the new album Dream Island Laughing Language is not governed by beats, favouring percussive rhythms and layers of textures and the rays of the brightest sun instead. Open the window and let it in, turn it up loud because the spirit of all the songs on this tropical forest of a record positively beams joy and humility. 'Givers' is right out there on the dance floor but 'Realistic Rhythm' does more of a Growing sort of shuffle, airy and diamond bright. There's a tribal element to Lucky Dragons and it's bolsted by a sense of humour or quirk. It sounds ecstatic.
