Alunageorge Coming To Bowery Ballroom

we’ve got a laptop and we’re gonna use it















Alunageorge’s Bowery Ballroom sold out before I’d even heard of the band, I ended up going to Stubhub and scalping a ticket. Why? Because this electronic English duo are the sort of heat seeking missile you need to catch before not after you figure out whether all they have in ’em is one album.

In 2013, singer Aluna Franklin and EDM giddery doo dah George Reid are coming on strong with their first album, Body Music. Aluna sings and writes the lyrics and George constructs the music, they play r&B with a dub step rhythm that has had the UK up in arms since “White Noise” -the Disclosure guest appearance off the frankly naff Settle. I said Settle was frankly naff and I meant it, but “White Noise” is actually pretty good.

Aluna has a certain je ne sais fucking quo and the duo have been getting raves everywhere they go. They are pretty good, there is a coolness in their touch, the beats are fine if a little subdued for my tastes, and the songs click as songs: it is very EDM, it is very clickety clack, but Aluna’s vocals are sexy yet cool, and very English. And the music is filled with frills and touches, a toot here, a cut up that. It is all very life on laptop and as successes goes it feels like a UK hit, rather than the European hits of, say, an Icona Pop.

But the excitement surrounding Alunageorge is tangible and there is nothing much more thrilling than a band on the verge of breaking the UK  (can’t wait for Sunday’s charts) when they first place nyc. Because, you know we are big time Anglophiles here, and really, just about every UK success story (with the excepotion of the Sex Pistols) began their US career here.

The November 22nd, 2013 Bowery Ballroom gig is, as I mentioned, sold out, but you might wanna figure someway to get in.
