Well, apparently my partner in MJF Weirdness, Jessie, has completely avoided posting AlunaGeorge throughout my sabbatical. Fear not, for I am here to save the day. AlunaGeorge spiked to relevancy in 2012, aka the year I tried to catch up on all the blog music in November and December. AlunaGeorge grabbed my ears’ attention for obvious reasons, very much “my type” musically. At least my type of recent times.
AlunaGeorge is a duo from London made up of singer Aluna Francis and producer George Reid. I need to know if they’re a couple, if anyone has that information send it my way…I really hope they are. Their tension in music videos is appreciated. “Diver” is a teaser from their forthcoming album, which will be released in June 2013. In the meantime, you can catch up on the prior music they’ve released on Spotify.
I also strongly recommend viewing the video for “Your Drums, Your Love” below. In addition to the song being mesmerizing, the video was filmed in illustrator Arran Gregory’s current exhibition at Dalston’s Print House Gallery and features nice choreography amongst a series of art that I am very much a fan of (as of today).
