AlunaGeorge’s new single Attracting Flies got its first play on Zane Lowe tonight, coinciding with confirmation that their debut LP ‘Body Music’ will see a summer release of 1st July.
Again, as we noted with Diver last month, Attracting Flies doesn’t really bring anything radically different to last year’s ‘You Know You Like It’ EP – and neither quite hits the immersive heights of Your Drums, Your Love. Still, Attracting Flies is bouncy and boisterous – fuelled along by George Reid’s quirky, R&B-fused production. Aluna Francis’s vocal, as sweet and soft they come, is also cleverly contrasted through the embittered lyrics, as she snarls at the song’s subject: “everything you exhale is attracting flies”. With previous reworks coming from the likes of Bobby Tank and Bondax, Soundcloud also informs us that trap-stars Baauer and S-Type will both be due on remix duty for the track. Stream it below.
