AlunaGeorge "Bad Idea"
Published Jul 08, 2013With AlunaGeorge's long-awaited, slightly delayed debut LP Body Music finally set to drop at the end of the month, the buzz-worthy R&B outfit are building some last-minute hype by streaming album cut "Bad Idea."
Following a quick intro of choppy vocal samples, singer Aluna Francis sets into a breathy break-up missive that has her cutting her dude loose for "dragging like wet wood." "You're a car crash waiting to happen / I'm putting on the brakes just to save myself," she admits later in the track. The single is fit with a steady clap beat and chip-tune synth blips, which should soften the blow of her impactful critique.

As previously reported, Body Music drops July 29 via Island, while the duo head to North America for a tour at the end of August. A Canadian date has been set up at Toronto's Hoxton on September 9. You can find the rest of the details over here.
UPDATE: The album will arrive in North America on July 30 on Vagrant.
