Described as a rock band who write pop songs, Dragonette are hot new stars with a twist! How can they possibly be different, I hear you cry? They’re a married couple for starters. Who gets married anymore? So old fashioned!

Dragonette consists of Martina Sorbara and Dan Kurtz. They met at a festival...

Martina: "I was the only chick on the bill, and I was singing what we affectionately call ‘tampon music’… You know, singer-songwriter, Ani DiFranco, Lilith Fair, Jewel-type music… tamponics! I didn’t wanna be strumming my fucking guitar for ever. I was so bored of that scene."

Dan: "I was in an improvisational, experimental, drum & bass and breakbeat trio. We were from pretty disparate musical areas, the two opposite ends of this Nickelback moment that was happening on the eastern coast of Canada..."

Martina: "and then we screwed."

Dan: "And then I left my girlfriend."

They currently reside in London and share a house with their drummer Joel.

They’re a duo, but kinda not at the same time. The remaining Dragonette outfit are drummer Joel Stouffer and guitarist Will Stapleton. A melting pot of sexual energy and 80’s synthpop. They are perfectly happy making music that isn’t introspective, indie or overly emotional. Oh yeah, and random fact of the day - Martina’s stylist is best friends with Anamatronic from the Scissor Sisters.

If you think you recognize Martina, it’s probably because you do – she’s the lovely lady who sings on the song Basement Jaxx – Take Me Back To Your House.

Martina’s wild, wonderfully outspoken and sings on stage in her knickers. Think Lily Allen, but with more balls, less of an attitude problem and better looking! What more could you want?
