musical musings – alunageorge.

Adding a new category on the blog today. Musical Musings posts will showcase artists whose music I’m currently loving who also employ cool/pretty/visually interesting album artwork. To start I’m sharing AlunaGeorge’s new album, I Remember. I’ve been listening to this album pretty much on repeat for about a week now and I’m finding new things to love about it the more I listen. If you’re not familiar, AlunaGeorge is a London-based musical duo consisting of Aluna Francis and George Reid. Their music is categorized as “Electronic” on iTunes but their sound is also very much informed by R&B. Singer, Aluna Francis provides vocals for the group which feel reminiscent of artists like Aaliyah and Groove Theory’s Amel Larrieux. I Remember is AlunaGeorge’s second album and they’re definitely showing a maturity since their previous release – both musically and in regards to their album art. I have an affinity for artists that choose to forgo traditional portrait photography on an album and opt for something more abstract instead. I love the linear-style illustration they’re using here and that the fusion of the two beings feels related to the duo’s musical collaboration. Check out the album cover below and listen to I Remember on iTunes here.
