AlunaGeorge: London Special!

Yeahhhh. Apologies for the lack of posts. We’ve been in Europe for the past month and a half but never fear, we found some sweet as music for your listening pleasure.

I’ve had several proud Australian music moments on this trip, including hearing the Perth band Tame Impala that took over every “best of 2012” list, I’ve also heard the Temper Trap and Strange Talk on the occasion, and they really love Empire of the Sun over here!

But as I’m in London right now, I thought I’d do a post on a local London duo that are really blowing up right now – AlunaGeorge. They’re composed of, funnily enough, Aluna Francis who does the singing, and George Reid who does the producing side of things. They haven’t been around for long but they’ve released some awesome songs including a collaboration with Disclosure called “White Noise” off Disclosure’s newest album which we reviewed here.

Take a listen to “Attracting Flies”, I really love the woodwind sounding instrument that opens the song as it’s so different to what you’d normally hear in the charts today. Aluna also has the sweetest singing voice that’s just like honey, and the occasional British accent that slips through is very charming.

THE BREAKDOWN:
Hometown: London, England.
Latest Album: Body Music, out 26 July 2013.
Sounds Like: The Ting Tings.
Say What? They came second on BBC’s Sounds of 2013 List. It’ll be exciting to see what they can do next!
