Dragonette

Dragonette is a part-Canadian part-British electropop music band that formed in Toronto, Canada in 2005. The band is made up of Canadian singer Martina Sorbara, her husband Dan Kurtz, a brazilian that has lived in Canada since he was 4 years old, Joel Stouffer and Will Stapleton (who replaced original guitarist Simon Craig following the band's move to London). Martina is a successful singer-songwriter in Canada, and Dan Kurtz a member of the popular livetronica trio The New Deal. Martina's father is Greg Sorbara, Ontario's Liberal Finance Minister. Martina has since referred to the work she produced as a solo artist as "tampon music".

All of the band members, with the exception of Will Stapleton (born in London), are from Toronto, but now they all live in West London. Originally called "The Fuzz", the band's first gigs were touring the USA as support act for Duran Duran. Since then the band have gone on to support other major UK acts including New Order, Basement Jaxx and the Sugababes. Dragonette picked up a Juno for 'Best Dance Recording' at the 2012 Juno Awards, beating out Deadmau5 and Duck Sauce. If you're a fan of contagious dance music - listen.
