AlunaGeorge’s innovative approach to urban pop has endeared
us as huge fans here at EQHQ. The
sublime alchemy of dreamwavey electronics, wobbly sub-bass and superb bluesy
vocals, provide a showcase of total sophistication and quality like no other
in the urban pop movement at the moment, in my opinion.
A breath of fresh air indeed, and creative tune making that
hasn’t gone un-noticed throughout the wider Music Industry. AlunaGeorge’s significant
strides in skilful composition making to date, have been rewarded by securing a
nomination for “Best Newcomer" at this year’s MOBO Awards (cast your vote here!)
Excited as we are to hear of the nomination, we also have a
new song and video to fall in lust with.
“Your Love, Your Drums” is an intricate pot-pourri of style
and art elegance, with its heart beating to an organic urban rhythm. Set in an art gallery, featuring the works
of acclaimed illustrator Arran Gregory. AlunaGeorge introduce the urban element
in by enlisting a crew of the world’s elite street dancers to add a flow of
movement to the stylish installation.
Word on the street here is it’s definitely brand unique –
