London act AlunaGeorge have already been described as "lustrous" (Pitchfork) and "thrillingly futuristic" (The Guardian) in their first year together.

The pair met when George (Reid, producer) got in contact with Aluna (Francis, singer) offering to remix a track for her old band.

They instantly had a connection.

Having worked on a collection of songs together they first made waves with the release of the You Know You Like It EP back in April. The stylised, monochrome video for that track also became a viral hit.

The London duo's modern take on UK RnB has already had strong support from MistaJam on BBC Radio 1Xtra and Huw Stephens on Radio 1.

Plus a fun band fact: Aluna used to be a reflexologist. Until recently she'd still receive calls from previous clients asking her for treatment.
