New Song: AlunaGeorge, ‘Bad Idea’
Hear AlunaGeorge’s definitely great electro-R&B jam “Bad Idea.”
“Bad Idea”? At this point, we’re pretty sure AlunaGeorge only has great ones. A guest appearance from the London duo on “White Noise” has already helped Disclosure become the year’s most blogged about act, according to The Hype Machine, the benevolent NSA of the music internet. Not that AlunaGeorge needs a hand itself: The group already read our minds with their “You Know You Like It” video, but we don’t need any visuals to join their latest Body party.
Listen to AlunaGeorge’s “Bad Idea” after the jump.
“You’re a car crash waiting to happen,” Aluna Francis sings, but the song’s not interested in hitting the breaks, bursting into colorful synth swirls and intricate, stuttering drum fills. Her vocals could be electro-pop sisters with former Sneaker Pimps singer Kelli Dayton, with the sassy level turned up to 11. Chill-out music, this is not: “Bad Idea” might be the getting-ready, dancing-in-your-socks-like-Jay-and-Bey pre-party jam of the year. Put it on before “I Love It” and you’re good to go — or just put it on, period. AlunaGeorge’s ridiculously anticipated Body Music is due July 29 (So soon! Gahhh!) on Island.
