Single Review – AlunaGeorge – I Remember

The Dance ‘Trip-hop’ duo of Aluna Francis and George Reid are to release their second studio album on April 29th with I Remember and now they’ve unveiled the title track from it. So far the duo have seemingly embraced more pop structures and themes around their Trip-hop sound of phasing, shuffling and minimalist dance music. This minimalism is more noticeable in what can be classed as a dance ballad of sorts. Aluna’s whispy and light vocals are often left to carry the song with similarly light synth inputs. Larger and more audible inputs grace the chorus to generate a musical and melodic peak. The track is quite simple but that is the beauty of it in many ways; it still remains to be seen whether these greater pop influences will pay off for them, but you with AlunaGeorge that they’ll be delivered in a stylish fashion.
