For me, it’s massive news when fresh AlunaGeorge drops. I have a feeling many of you feel the same way. I’ve been an ardent fan of the English electronic duo since before IHM existed, having fallen hard for George Reid’s production prowess and Aluna Francis’ sassy vocals from the moment I heard You Know You Like It. The pair are just so good at crafting a unique brand of music that pulls from 90′s R&B, UK garage, and dancehall, and it came as no surprise when they collaborated with Disclosure on their first album Settle considering how well the groups’ sounds meld. AlunaGeorge is heading out on tour soon with Coldplay. Just in time to kick off their travels are Turn Up The Love and Last Kiss, the pair’s first new singles of the year. Turn Up The Love is a bubbly lithe, fiery spry jam. Signature AlunaGeorge vibes are saturated with an extra whiff of tropical warmth.  Last Kiss, which can be streamed via YouTube below, leans more heavily into dancehall territory. Its steel drums also make it a summer time must. It’s a tune you’ll want to take with you onto a white sand beach.

There sure as heck is nothing “fake” when it comes to the magic that happens when Aussie duo Peking Duk and UK duo AlunaGeorge come together. The epic union has resulted in a funk permeated banger named Fake Magic, which comes with a fresh new video situated in a seedy dive bar. Aluna’s signature sassy R&B vocals are a heavenly accompaniment to Peking Duk’s disco endowed electro. The plucky electrifying jam channels a generous amount of Daft Punk in its flashy glamorous threads. Fake Magic is out on iTunes, here.
