Following their major label sophomore album, I Remember, AlunaGeorge returns two years later with an independent EP, Champagne Eyes.
With the angelic voice of Aluna Francis, and the sultry, hypnotic soundscape produced by George Reid, AlunaGeorge is the perfect neo-soul duo. The EP circles around themes of love and life in general.
In an interview with i-D, Francis spoke about the growth of the group, their sophomore album, and now their new EP:
“Me and George decided we were going back to doing what we do. We love our downtempo and although we’ve become known for our dance music, which is also a very genuine part of our musical soul, it’s not who we are. We love a good song. I love a good dance as well. This EP is really just to say, ‘Don’t worry. We are who we say we are. Just because we lost our way doesn’t mean we’ve given up.’ This EP is also a thank you to all of our fans for sticking with us. Just forget the [songs] you didn’t like.”
