AlunaGeorge contributed to one of the hottest songs, 'White Noise,' from Disclosure's excellent 'Settle' album. That tune only increased the anticipation for the London pop duo's debut, 'Body Music,' due out July 29 via Island.

Enter 'Bad Idea,' AlunaGeorge's new single. Over snaking synths and a slamming beat, Aluna provides details about a terrible lover who's dragging her down. “I'm gonna have to cut you loose,” she warns. “You're a car crash waiting to happen.” She jumps out just in time.

Like the other songs we've heard so far from 'Body Music' – such as 'You Know You Like It' and 'Attracting Flies' – 'Bad Idea' is a total summer jam. That's exactly what we need right now.
