[listen] AlunaGeorge, “Bad Idea”

Their heart ain't broken.

- Jul 8, 2013

AlunaGeorge make large songs, so the Jetsons-meets-Grease electro-pop theatrics of “Bad Idea” feels like a logical continuation of their strobe-lit catwalk to the major leagues of UK pop. Aluna Francis plays a liberated breaker-upper, shrugging off someone else's dead weight with breathy sensuality and infectiously mocking, Betty Boop-ish “Doop ba doop” scats over the hook. It's one joyous “who gives a fuck?” at a scrub's well-deserved heartache. Body Music is out July 29th.
