Dragonette dropped by CBC Music while touring its latest album, Royal Blues. Nearly four years in the making, this release is another collection of electro-pop bangers as the band works through the personal separation of Martina Sorbara and Dan Kurtz. The trio navigates new relationships as bandmates, but not life partners.
Past albums saw Sorbara and Kurtz working together through the writing process, whereas this latest had Sorbara collaborating with songwriters Matt Schwartz (Kylie Minogue) and Mark Nilan Jr. (Trey Songz), while Kurtz produced the music. The outcome is a celebration for Dragonette, as the band relearns how to work together to move on to the next chapter in their career.
We grabbed Sorbara and drummer Joel Stouffer to play them songs from Prince, Cyndi Lauper, Sean Paul and more. They gave their unabashed and hilarious opinions for this latest round of Jam or Not a Jam.
