AlunaGeorge came together with the thought of shaking up the Top 40 scene. Or at least hoping music fans would give them a listen when they got bored and wanting something different. Needless to say, the duo doesn't have to worry anymore and who likes what or why. In fact, they know "You Know You Like It."
Meet the pair comprised of Aluna Francis and George Reid. Together they are one part melodies and lyrics, one part supranormal arrangements and seductive sound. And since their first meeting in 2009, they've been the go-to EM duo thanks to alluring singles like the aforementioned "You Know You Like It" and "Your Drums, Your Love."
Though its hard to pinpoint the exact date it seemed like everyone was talking about AlunaGeorge, 2013 as a whole was very, very good to them. They were among the final three contenders for the Brits Critics' Choice Award, and were later nominated for the Sound of 2013 poll, in which they finished in second place. They even played at Pitchfork's Paris festival in November, booked a gig at London Fashion Week.
It all seems par for the course for the duo, which used to give away songs on their website, and whose music was once used on an episode of the US show "Skins" for soundtracking a sex scene. Their first video for the UK label Super was also so low-budget that no one got paid. Oddly enough, it was the spark to the multitude of publishers and labels that came calling.
AlunaGeorge's debut album, "Body Music," rolled out in June 2013, and has propelled them into the upper echelon of British Pop. The only thing that can come next is an even more electric 2014.

It's been a couple years since then, with the band remaining relatively quiet but consistent, having released hit collaborations with Jack Ü and Baauer in 2014 and…Read more
