Britain’s AlunaGeorge (singer Aluna Francis and producer George Reid) take sliced-and-diced vocals and deconstructed pop structures, then put those elements back together into a neo-R&B package reminiscent of Sweden’s Little Dragon, but sexier. The two have released their latest song and video “Watching Over You,” and it’s a sultry affair heavy on manipulated vocals and analog spurts.
Brendan Canty directed the clip, which features footage of old Nintendo games and Hey Arnold!. “Watching Over You” appears on the Annie Mac Presents 2012 compilation (out October 8). Watch it up top, and click through for AlunaGeorge’s breakout song “Your Drums, Your Love.”
“Your Drums, Your Love” is getting its own remix EP, out October 14.
