Aluna Francis and George Reid, who are also known as AlunaGeorge, have come into the music scene with hit singles such as “You Know You Like It” and “Your Drums, Your Love,” both of which made it to the UK Singles Chart.
The UK duo have released other singles since then, such as “I’m In Control,” “White Noise” with Disclosure, and were nominated for the Critics’ Choice at the BRIT Awards in 2013. Last fall they released their sophomore album, I Remember, which allowed the two of them to push their limits into bolder territories, burnishing their unique sonic palette and channeling personal experience through a variety of pop styles.
The album features singles such as the Flume-produced “I Remember” and “My Blood” featuring ZHU. Right after releasing their last track, “Last Kiss,” last week, AlunaGeorge just dropped a brand new track, “Turn Up The Love” via Geffen Records.
“The creative concept is to release two tracks, one upbeat song and one ballad, to symbolize ‘light and shade’ and highlight the duality of both songs,” said Francis.
After being an opening act for Sia during her North American tour, AlunaGeorge will now hit the road with Coldplay beginning August 1.
