New Single Released October 8th
In June, the London duo of producer George Reid and singer Aluna Francis released their debut EP, ‘You Know You Like It’ on the experimental Tri Angle Records. The three tracks seamless marriage of UK glitch and bass culture and sample based production with futuristic R&B sheen and British pop sensibilities packed a contagious punch, winning the accolades of everyone from the NME and The Guardian to Pitchfork and Spin, quickly highlighting AlunaGeorge as one of 2012’s brightest hopes. Hot off the heels of that resounding opening gambit, AlunaGeorge now announce their new single, ‘Your Drums, Your Love’ which will be released on October 8th on Island Records.
Picking up where ‘You Know You Like It’ left off, ‘Your Drums, Your Love’ continues the duo’s streak of cutting-edge club pop with an enticingly downbeat R&B ballad. Reid’s elusively liquid synths, rumbling low-end bass and hip-gyrating electronic sway provide a glistening backdrop to the sweet allure of Aluna’s voice, soaring with the arching, fragile refrain of “I’ve been treading water for your love”, evoking a distinctly 21st century sensation of dance-floor infatuation. Precision-honed, adventurous, infectiously catchy, ‘Your Drums, Your Love’ is further proof that AlunaGeorge embody 21st century British pop at its most instantly classic and exhilarating.
