With the second annual Budweiser Made in America Festival right around the corner, this Labor Day weekend to be exact, I wanted to take the time out to formally introduce you to one of the acts I am most excited to see live in Philly; AlunaGeorge. AlunaGeorge is a UK based musical duo, consisting of vocalist Aluna Francis and producer George Reid. Their sound is one of my favorites now, a blend of UK garage, R&B, electronica, down-tempo, house, and pop.
They’ve been bubbling under the radar for some time, recently bursting into the mainstream with their Disclosure collaboration, “White Noise”, but now, they are truly ready to take the United States, embarking on a multi-city tour throughout the month of September. They are touring their major label debut, Body Music, which includes the sexy single “You Know You Like It”. Check out snippets of the album below, now available for purchase on iTunes.
Are you digging the sound? Will you be checking out AlunaGeorge this fall? Sound off below!
