Riff: AlunaGeorge – “Attracting Flies”

Mar 1, 2013

Who needs the drama, who said you have to bleed/I’m excited, come on surprise me/Sweep me off my feet

from Attracting Flies lyrics by AlunaGeorge

The warped R&B duo’s first single since positioning 2nd on the BBC’s Sound of 2013 is arguably their most immediate – a slinky blend of classic house stabs and whistling synths which sees Francis’ sugary tones smackdown any chances of a reconciliation with an inspired ‘you talk shit’ euphemism; [LISTEN].
