Aluna Francis has quickly established herselves as one of the softest, most desirable voices that’s bled into dance music this year, but it’s the thorough beats from counterpart George Reid that really give her the platform to blast those vocals. After touching bases with Rustie, duo AlunaGeorge continues on the up and up with their first release since signing to Island Def Jam Records, a woozy seduction aptly titled Your Drums, Your Love. Their music is chock full of retro pop influence, but at the same time it seems months or even years ahead of today’s popular music.
As I said, the duo has thankfully bled into dance music, and because of this, the release came with some sick remixes. London’s Lil Silva gives the tune a true dance-track makeover with more upbeat percussion and a thick bassline to push the energy. If you wanna crank it even higher (I’m talkin 174bpm high), checkout the remix from The Prototypes, who’ve been on a huge tear since remixing Hadouken’s Bad Signal earlier this year. If you’re diggin’ this, check out the entirety of the release on iTunes.
