Little Dragon - “Lover Chanting”

The C Major Scale is the starting point for most musicians and one of the most commonly used scales as it features exclusively white keys. Its key signature has no flats and no sharps. Its relative minor is A minor.

In this song Little Dragon have composed a song in the key of C that doesn’t even get to a C chord until the bridge. This gives the song a suspenseful floating quality with a really good payoff in the bridge. The song is based around chords IV and III in the key of C Major. F Maj7 and Emin7.
