Track Review: AlunaGeorge - Outlines

AlunaGeorge release their debut album Body Music next week, and after the initial, it's already flagged up as one of 2013's RnB underdogs. The opening track "Outlines" gives AlunaGeorge a whole new audience. Before, AlunaGeorge showcased a glitchy, electronic sound that’s very much late night DJ as it is 90s Disco. Tracks like "Your Drums, Your Love" and "Attracting Flies" have killer song structures, with the all-important electronic vocal hook. The latter track is a poignant ballad that has united music lovers from all stations of popularity. It's no surprise that debut album Body Music features all of this, but enhanced to last 50 minutes.

Body Music's opening track sounds like it's been done before by many RnB artists from the 90s. The slow progression and Aluna Francis' sultry vocal creates a fantastic electro-pop mix. George Reid has created a fresh sound reminiscent of the 90s, but as presentable and cult-esque as The Weeknd. AlunaGeorge are combining audiences with their songs of pop and electronica. It won't be long before AlunaGeorge top the charts and headline festivals at this rate. Their previously released singles are solid musically and lyrically, "Outlines" is no different. Body Music will be the Devotion of 2013 - I welcome it.
