Although LA-based Electric Guest have been around since 2005, it has only been recently that the duo has garnered attention. With a slot on Letterman back in April and a debut album produced by Danger Mouse, it’s only a matter of time before they completely blow up. As Cover Me has seen with many artists who are touring in Australia, the duo took the time to visit Triple J studios and hinted that their cover would involve a “tiny mythical creature.” Which tiny mythical creature did they cover, you ask? Little Dragon, of course.
The duo covered “Ritual Union,” the title track of Little Dragon’s latest LP. Electric Guest does not stray too far from the original, but that actually makes it more impressive. Singer Asa Taccone manages to hit all of the high notes that Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano, which is no easy feat. The song is only aided by the video of their energetic performance. Enjoy the video below.
