The Best way we can describe AlunaGeorge's debut album 'Body Music' is to equate it to a bag of Pic'n Mix. The album is simply full to the brim of delicious sweet goodness with the occasionally jaw breaking gobstopper, some ultra sour but ultimately satisfying cola bottles and a handful of crunchy mouth popping candy.
Opening with the dreamy 'Outlines' we are slowly brought into the world of AlunaGeorge. 'You Know You Like It' treats us to some meaty base to accompany Aluna's child like voice, a great balancing act ensues. We absolutely love 'Attracting Flies' from the first few bars leading up to the vocals we were already dancing around the office! Other favourites include 'Your Drums, Your Love' a track we could listen to for hours, 'Bad Idea' with its synth heavy beats and 90's feel and 'Lost and Found' kind of made us feel like we were inside Tetris or some funky 90's computer game! One of our absolute favourites 'Superstar' has frankly been on repeat for about an hour, a perfect combination of fleshy beats and silky smooth lyrics.
As a debut album its superb however there are far too many great tracks for us to dissect in this small review, so we mentioned only a few of our favourites. We give 'Body Music' a huge 4.5 Stars out of 5!
