Scheduled to make their Australian debut this October as part of the inaugural Listen Out
festival party, UK duo AlunaGeorge have announced they will be playing just one headlining sideshow while in town, so Sydney – this one’s for you.
The fusion of vocalist Aluna Francis and beat-maker George Reid caused an absolute fuss even before their record dropped, and judging by their recently unveiled debut full-length Body Music, we’ve been delivered everything the hype promised. The album was thrown online late July, giving fans the opportunity to sample the new wares the same day it was available for purchase.
It wasn’t just in Australia that the album resonated – in their homeland, Body Music made it to the top 10 UK iTunes charts. The band have also proved their worth through the European festival circuit, where they have quickly become crowd favourites, and their upcoming appearances Down Under is expected to have a similar result on Aussie audiences.
Listen Out also features Disclosure, Azealia Banks and TNGHT. The party kicks off Saturday, 28th September in Sydney and tours through till Sunday, 6th October in Brissy.
