Disclosure – White Noise featuring AlunaGeorge Review
Disclosure is yet to release its debut album but it has already launched the digital download for the single ‘White Noise.’ The British duo started distributing the song online on February 1, 2013. Since then, the track has reached the No. 2 spot on the UK Singles Chart.
It was written by Guy Lawrence, James Napier, Howard Lawrence, and Aluna Francis. It features vocals from another English music duo, AlunaGeorge.
Upon its release, the song has garnered mixed reactions from music critics. Some of them think the song is actually a good track especially to listeners who are not familiar with the previous work of both duos. Others cannot point out what it is that seems to be lacking from the song. On the positive side, many critics simply describe it as savvy.
They want to emphasize that the humming bassline, addictive beeps, and swirling synths of Disclosure somehow complements and matches the pitched vocals of AlunaGeorge.
Overall, the song does not sound forced. There is a logical and impressive balance between the two duos who agreed to collaborate in the track. It can be hipster friendly and at the same time a chart dominator.
