Disclosure - White Noise (ft AlunaGeorge)

It aims to soundtrack every moment of youth and vital escapism. And it’s bound to succeed in doing just that.

It’s difficult to envisage any collaboration between new artists causing as much of a stir as this one. Hearing Kilo Kish and Bondax locking arms was enough to render us speechless. Simply seeing AlunaGeorge and Disclosure in the same track name achieves the same result.

So with the thrill of anticipation also comes a backdrop of caution. There’s a heap of expectation being placed both on our current coverstars (and DIY’s Class Of 2013 alumni) and brothers Lawrence. It’d be a job well done if either of these artists get that little bit closer to threatening the charts, let alone storming them. ‘White Noise’, however, isn’t just a brilliantly self-assured effort, free from outside pressure. It also paints a more thorough picture of where these guys are heading in 2013.

‘White Noise’ will soundtrack every club over the country. Even beyond its star-studded cast, if it emerged out of the blue by a group of unknowns it wouldn’t fail to have a similar effect. Like the Jessie Ware ‘Running’ remix that so dominated the year preceding, Guy and Howard place Aluna’s sweet-as-candy vocals in unchartered territory. A house pulse gets ramped up in intensity and a chorus of ‘you just wanna keep me on repeat and hear me crying’ provides for something thrilling and dazzling in skill.

It’s the sound of some of the country’s most exciting talents getting carried along in their own wave of momentum. Aware of an ever-increasing audience, it aims to soundtrack every moment of youth and vital escapism. And it’s bound to succeed in doing just that.
