Seconds

Album: Ritual Union (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This ambient number by the Swedish electronic band Little Dragon was forgotten by the quartet after they recorded it, only for them to find it again and include it as the closing track of their third album, Ritual Union.
  • Vocalist Yukimi Nagano discussed the song in an interview with This is Fake DIY: "That desire that you can't deny lifting you couple inches above ground. When you give in. Flout. Sweetness in the sky, humming insects that are in trance moving the beat, the forest and the cities. But you are still hooked. This song has simplicity and was easy to record. It came with a flow on just one of those days in the studio."
