Something to rave about.
GT's got the hots for Disclosure's new track with AlunaGeorge.
More from GT Music
There’s a white noise circulating around the GT Towers this afternoon and it isn’t the crunching of snow underneath our now dishevelled boots – will it ever end?
No, this is the stomping, feel-good kind, courtesy of danceheads Disclosure and new kids in town, AlunaGeorge. An unexpected pairing, perhaps, but one sending the ice, and iPods nationwide, into meltdown. White Noise is a union of electronica, heavy beats and dubstep-infused intensity – ie everything we love in new music. Soft vocals from Aluna add bliss (and let's face it, if the rave revival has a reason, it’s aural ecstasy) and George, quite frankly, brings some fit factor. Tick.
Already a hot product, Disclosure’s latest single Latch reached the UK Top 20 and the duo were nominated as part of BBC Radio 1 Xtra’s Hot Ten for 2013. As for AlunaGeorge, with BBC Sound of 2013 and BRIT’s Critics’ Choice nominations to their name, they’re in good stead for the release of their debut album this year.
Some things work well together. Champagne and Fridays. Ben Cohen and briefs. You can now add Disclosure and AlunaGeorge to that list. Hit repeat and get warmed up.
White Noise is released on 17 February.
