LIVE: AlunaGeorge @ XOYO
The R&B-Meets-Garage Sound Proves A Hit!
Last night, on February 19th, AlunaGeorge took to the stage for their sold-out show at London’s XOYO.
The duo of Aluna Francis and George Reid sold out this date even before Christmas of last year, so the excitement in the air was electric.
The 90's inspired R&B/Garage pair put on an amazing show. The combination of Reid’s clean-cut production and Francis’ vocals make this pair one of the most exciting acts of this year, and considering they have only had two singles out, the packed crowd is very impressive.
Their show opened with ‘Just A Touch’ as Aluna took to the stage in pyjama bottoms, a crop-top and sunglasses - all which she effortlessly pulls off. The pair also performed ‘Be Your Boo’, which is set to be a highlight from their upcoming debut album ‘Body Music’.
AlunaGeorge went on to perform other new tracks such as ‘You Know You Like It’ and ‘Watching Over You’, all which got the crowd moving. They performed other tracks but the real treats were their covers of Frank Ocean’s ‘Thinkin’ Bout You’ and Montal Jordan’s ‘This Is How We Do It’.
'Your Drums, Your Love' brought the house down at the end, as the buzzing crowd screamed the lyrics back at the act, cementing their love for the duo. If this is the kind of reaction they’re getting now, the future can only be bright.
AlunaGeorge’s debut album is out in June via Island Records.
