AlunaGeorge talks festival life and working with Diplo, Skrillex
Shortly before taking the stage at Governors Ball 2014’s Gotham tent, Aluna Francis of AlunaGeorge briefly spoke to Billboard about festival culture, touring and forthcoming collaborations with unlikely candidates. “I just like the vibe because people are open to everything new happening – meeting new people – and there’s this kind of relaxed atmosphere about it,” she says.
Though their busy tour schedule has deprived the UK duo of studio time, Aluna revealed to Billboard that taking a week off in the countryside to write music allowed for stellar results. In addition to enlisting British singer-songwriter Cathy Dennis, Diplo and Skrillex were also invited to work on new music, which will hopefully arrive in the near future.
