HardCandyMusic.com Interviews Dragonette

“The award goes to Dragonette for Hard Candy’s most interviewed artist!” (Applause)

Last time they were in town as you know we caught Dragonette performing right in our backyard at the Brooklyn Bowl and we could not pass up the opportunity to once again speak with one of our favorite front ladies, the lovely Martina!  So before the show, up in the log cabin style green room, we chatted about what the reception to their sophomore album Fixin To Thrill has been, the Easy video, the writing process and why she stays away from press reviews (even if they do all rock!)

*Note we HATE that noisy band in the background of this but bear with us!

We so excited that Dragonette will be continuing touring North America this summer. Dan Black will also join them on a couple of dates (he gets around doesn’t he?!)

  1. Thanks so much for this interview. I am so in love with Dragonette!!!! I wish I could see them live and meet them. They have been so cool about emails and stuff. They sent me one of their demo EP's and an autographed poster. What song were you asking about at around 18min. I couldn't quite pick it up over the band? Also do you know who that band was that was playing while you intervied Martina?

  2. Hey! Thanks for bearing with the interview haha! We're talking about a song called 'My Things' aka 'Get You Titties Of My Things” they've been playing it live for quite a while now and the studio version is dropping on the 'Mixin To Thrill' album dropping this summer!
