AlunaGeorge hit Pitchfork yesterday, and I’ve already digested and figured out that the best song in my opinion thus far that they’ve released is definitely the sultry, slithery funk that is “You Know You Like It”.
Aluna Francis’ tentative voice mixed with her Brit accent and light but agile voice are what make this track standout, and George Reid’s track channels the funk of yore mixed with an airy, electronic and sub-bass heavy sound that writhes up and down your spine.
AlunaGeorge got their start randomly making music, and they have a new EP hitting shelves as well. This video though reminds me of Kimbra (especially in the above video) meets Beverley Knight. And Robyn. And they had a electro R&B baby. They got their start off as friends making music for fun on their MacBook, only to realize that they’re actually kind of good at it. Rags to riches!
What do you all think of AlunaGeorge? Check out their latest song “Just A Touch” from their EP of the same name as the video above, due out today, below:
