Ear Candy: Disclosure featuring AlunaGeorge – “White Noise”
Here’s a song that feels like a proper #1, regardless of its runner-up status on the UK charts and marginal popularity in the US. Disclosure are two brothers – Howard and Gary Lawrence – who make intriguing dance music culled from bass, house, and garage styles. They’ve built quite a following within the more esteemed electronic circles of London and beyond, but with “White Noise,” they pair with equally beguiling duo AlunaGeorge for a true pop stormer. “Lately, I’ve been thinking that if you wanna get tough, then lets play rough” the playful but mildly threatening pre-chorus goes, before it all goes zero gravity at the chorus, which boasts a zippy Ninja Tune-esque bassline and Icona Pop-worthy chant, “Just noise! White noise!” Unabashed fans of exclamatory, carbonated productions that we are, we are behind this 100% and hope Disclosure’s debut American show at Manhattan’s Bowery Ballroom next month brings them a new onslaught of Stateside admirers.
