Alunageorge Announces Debut Album 'Body Music' Released July 1st 2012

Since the release of 'Your Drums, Your Love', AlunaGeorge have rapidly established themselves as one of the UK's brightest prospects, and their latest offering will arrive in the form of 'Attracting Flies' released on 10th March via Island Records.

Amidst a flurry of hyped shows and putting the finishing touches to their highly anticipated debut album Body Music, due on 1st July, the duo have been picking up fans left, right and centre. Alongside their own incredible achievements AlunaGeorge's recent collaboration with Disclosure on 'White Noise' quickly racked up over a million plays online and reached number two in the UK charts. Aluna will perform the song live for the first time with Disclosure at their sold out warehouse party in London on 8th March.

Also nominated for the prestigious BRITs Critic's Choice Award, another accolade to add to their number two spot in BBC's Sound of 2013 poll, and their achievement of being the UK's most blogged about artist at the close of 2012. AlunaGeorge recently played yet another sold out show, at London's XOYO, and only a handful of tickets to their biggest London headline show to date, at Electric Brixton on 20th June remain.

Single 'Attracting Flies' packs a lot into three minutes. An incredibly infectious riff starts the track off before it plunges into George's trademark thick, clipped beats and synth parts, complemented by Aluna's honeyed confrontational vocals, as she pulls apart an unwanted tagger on - "Your invitation's a fake / Must be from a ticket tout." The slowed-down UK garage style chorus feels as good as it should and drops easily back into that riff before the stripped back middle eight hammers home Aluna's sweet-sounding dismissive lyrics - "Why would I care if you want me?"
