This group has never felt compelled to induce whiplash; in fact, their willingness to lay back and luxuriate presaged a wave of reflective, unhurried pop that remains trendy today. 
Rolling Stone

"Season High, Little Dragon's latest triumph, is continued proof of how timeless this band can be." - Brooklyn Vegan

"Like its predecessors, their fifth full-length Season High  
purposefully avoids marquee guests and wild stylistic leaps in favor of cautiously controlled, luxury mood music." 
 
Pitchfork

"With an evolved new collection of tracks that are both hot and smart, Little Dragon has set themselves further apart." - Under The Radar

"Season High i 
s typical Little Dragon fare, and we mean that in the best way possible. This is perfect pre-summer music." - Pigeons & Planes

"Throwback synths welcome in the warm slice of alternative R&B, a track full of smooth, subtle low-end and snapping percussion. "High" is equal parts meditative and sensual..." 
Consequence of Sound

"Season High moves from slinky Prince pastiche to body-jacking house music, and it takes all of them with a smooth sense of assurance." Stereogum

"This paean to loose trips and close touches is a reliable soundtrack to a narcotized Valentine's Day in with a main squeeze." - NPR

"beautiful dream-pop vocals from lead singer Yukimi Nagano, layered over slow-dance-appropriate electronic beats" - Paste Magazine

"Here's your new, woozy bedroom anthem. Press play and vibe out. This is music therapy at its most alleviating." - NYLON
