​At the end of 2010, Toronto-based electro-pop trio Dragonette released, "Hello," a spritely collaborative single with DJ Martin Solveig.

Though too late to make the cut for year-end lists and recaps, the track -- boasting three centerpiece hooks: a gleefully tickled piano lick; singer and chief songwriter, Martina Sorbrara's crystal-clear vocals; and some well placed drops -- was perfectly situated to become one of the biggest hits of 2011.

The ingredients were obviously flammable. And Dragonette was not afraid to light a match in the form of the song's accompanying, super quirky music video featuring Solveig squaring off in a tennis match against French producer Bob Sinclair.

Following the song's breakout success and some steady touring that's taken them to SXSW as well as this month's Coachella, the group has also begun the process of slowly leaking new material, like "The Right Woman," a crunchy electro ditty rooted firmly in the twinkling production of disco and house. And if this new cut is any indication, Dragonette is nowhere near done pumping out hits.

Dragonette with Pirate Stereo and Kalimi. Friday, April 6. Mansion, 1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. The party starts at 11 p.m. and tickets cost $20 plus fees via wantickets.com. Call 305-695-8411 or visit mansionmiami.com.
