Little Dragon and Red Bull are proud to announce the Nabuma Derby, a national racing series hosted in record stores starting May 11th, just as Nabuma Rubberband hits the shelves. Participating independent record stores nationwide will hold racing derbies featuring rubberband-powered racers built and designed by fans. For those outside driving range of these derbies, there will also be a national contest where fans can create a Nabuma Derby racer and upload a photo to Instagram and hashtag #nabumaderby. The national contest will be solely based on the creative design of the car. Little Dragon will hand-pick a winner who will get 2 round trip flights and 2 tickets to Bonnaroo.
“When we did our signing at Amoeba Music in LA on Record Store Day, we were reminded of the creative energy and sense of community record stores provide” says Yukimi from Little Dragon. “So we were so excited to build on that, especially by partnering with Red Bull. Aside from all their support of new music, they are the perfect partner for the Nabuma Derby, it’s whimsical marriage of their involvement in F1 and their own Flugtag events!”
For the regional derbies, full information and a list of stores can be found here. The fan with the fastest car at each derby will win a signed lithograph by the band as well as a custom trophy. The derbies will be held during the album’s release week starting May 11th at Rough Trade in Brooklyn. For the nationwide contest, fans can enter by posting their car to Instagram or Tumblr using the hashtag #nabumaderby.
Nabuma Rubberband will be in stores on May 13th via Loma Vista Recordings. More info about the contest and instructions on how to participate can be found on Little Dragons website below.
