AlunaGeorge continue along the path of utter brilliance

According to this Newsbeat article, Aluna Francis from AlunaGeorge used to be a reflexologist - so it's no wonder their songs sound so supple.

Their latest offering, Your Drums, Your Love has similar ingredients to You Know You Like It and Just A Touch - brooding vocals, creepy slow-attack synths and beats that bounce and scatter like thumb tacks pins dropped on the floor.

Lyrically, it's a tale of unrequited love - with Aluna singing: "I've been treading water for your love / Whether I sink or swim, it's you I'm thinking of".

More importantly, it's the shimmering, sparkling sound of the future. Can't wait for their debut album next year.

Your Drums, Your Love is due out in October. Until then, you can bide your time with this luscious acoustic version of You Know You Like It on the Guardian website.
