“I’ve been treading water for your love.”

“Your Drums, Your Love” by AlunaGeorge | While I was attending far too many Christmas parties the past couple of weeks, the BBC released the longlist for its annual Sound of poll. (Last year’s winner was this guy.) I’ve written about some of this year’s contenders – Haim and Chvrches, in this case – and I’ve been long meaning to write about AlunaGeorge, who I have a feeling will make it really big this year, because of how ubiquitous they are slowly becoming. (I’ve heard them on Play FM. The one in Palembang.) The duo of Aluna Francis and George Reid have lovingly blurred the line between R&B, pop and a bit of bass – like the xx with a bit more feeling. Personally I’d like to see Haim claim first place in this year’s poll, but I don’t mind if it’s them.
