Dragonette are a Canadian electronic music band from Toronto, Ontario, formed in 2005. The band consists of singer-songwriter Martina Sorbara, bassist and producer Dan Kurtz, and drummer Joel Stouffer.
Sorbara and Kurtz met at a Canadian music festival and formed a duo named The Fuzz, making music together in their basement recording studio for fun. The duo formed Dragonette after these initial recordings, and supported New Order on only their second live performance. In 2005, the band released the six-track Dragonette EP, prior to signing a record deal with UK record label Mercury Records.
Dragonette relocated to London to record their debut studio album, Galore, released on 6 August 2007, and toured the UK supporting local acts, including Basement Jaxx and Sugababes. British musician Will Stapleton replaced Simon Craig on guitar following the relocation.
