Not Above Love - AlunaGeorge |

When YouTube gives you a suggestion like this one, you just have to review it right? I haven't heard from AlunaGeorge in a while but here they are and what an amazing song that is totally relatable to me right now. I'm not above love and nor is AlunaGeorge. This totally works! Watch Aluna Francis from AlunaGeorge fully bring it in this highly emotional music video for "Not Above Love".

AlunaGeorge are a duo consisting of Aluna Francis and George Reid. They're definitely one of the most underrated British duos, and their latest album totally underperformed; however, they're still going on to do great things, and I believe they'll bring it once again, sometime in the future. I'm still gutted they didn't win the Brits' Critic Choice award back in 2013. I cannot wait to see what AlunaGeorge brings in the coming years. This total fired-up single was written by Aluna Francis, Antonia Armato, Yogesh Tulsiani, Tim James, Christopher W. Smith, James Ryan Shelton Hall, and Alexander Jeffrey Hall.

Directed by Sing J. Lee, this music video is both narrative and performance based, with Aluna Francis looking incredibly gorgeous throughout.

The narrative shows Aluna and a bunch of her friends driving away, packing, it's like they're on holiday, although the song suggests that she's left her guy that she's been seeing, because she's not above love. There are various images of the guy in question shown throughout. Aluna fades in and out of her current life, and her friends have to remind her where she is... We all do this from time to time, right?

Her performance piece is on point throughout, adding all the right emotion at exactly the right time. She clearly means every word of this song, and just proves she had a part in writing it because there's no other way to get that emotion across.

Overall, AlunaGeorge has knocked it out of the park once again. This deserves to be a hit song, but like many others in the world, it will disappear. The music video is completely amazing and easily relatable to the song. AlunaGeorge has got it all going on, and they will come back with a hit like no other, this is something that is obvious.
