Canadian electro-pop trio Dragonette returns with the airy, joyous new single “Lonely Heart.” Flipping the assumed blues of the title on its head with its swift, inexorable punch-drunk summer hook, the track pairs a reggae-tinged synth line with shout-out-loud backups and a lazy, toe-tapping beat, blasting straight into its sticky sweet center, as Martina Sorbara repeats on the irresistible hook, “I’ve got a lonely heart, got a lonely heart.” And even despite the brief downcast bridge, where Sorbara sings “late night cab rides, with a lonely heart, chest pressed upright, against a lonely heart / I got to fill it up, fill my lonely heart,” it’s clear they understand the power in taking the carefree high road during bouts of sadness.
