How long has it been since I last mentioned one of my musical crushes on the blog? I don't know about you, but I sure missed sharing my new found loves with you all!
The other day, my parents and I went to have dinner at the restaurant my sister works in. It's a really cool place, with amazing, innovative food, and chill atmosphere. The music contributed to that. Amongst the cool tunes they played were AlunaGeorge's Your Drums, Your Love, which I've mentioned a little while back. Hearing this reminded me of how I liked it and made me want to explore the band and their music more.
I'm glad I did! This band is named after the two people in it -- duh -- Aluna being the singer, George the musician/composer. Together, they deliver this bomb music, R&B infused with futurisic sounds, reminiscing of that 90's music, which you know I feel nostalgic about. :) I feel it also has that UK 2-step/grime vibe to it that makes it extra interesting!
Aluna has that soft, smooth voice that contrasts with those you usually hear amongst R&B singers. Something new, fresh to please my ears. Their first album, Body Music, came out about two years ago, but you know what they say, better late than sorry!
A favorite :)
What do you listen to nowadays?
