Any band who shares a stage with New Order is one you know you can't miss out on. While most people probably associate Toronto synthpop trip Dragonette with their blockbuster hit with Martin Solveig, "Hello", which was featured basically everywhere for a few years after its release in 2010, frontwoman Martina Sorbara, bassist Dan Kurtz, and drummer Joel Stouffers have so much more to offer. Their recently released fourth studio album Royal Blues still exists as a home for endless party anthems as do their previous efforts, but it also comes with a few chill, hand-out-the-window-air-surfing while driving hits like "Body 2 Body". It also comes with a feature from Dutch DJ Mike Mago and a track named after everyone's favorite Star Wars franchise Villain—because, duh.

The "Outlines" band who, yes, supported New Order in their younger years (and have toured with Major Lazer and Miike Snow) just ended a headlining tour supporting the new record, stopping in Montreal, Salt Lake City, and Boston—where Dragonette took over The Royale, Sorbara donning a disco-ball-inspired bomber jacket that we were immensely jealous of. See it in all of its glory by browsing through the photo gallery below and Track them on Bandsintown so you don't miss another live show.
