"Hurting" by SG Lewis feat. AlunaGeorge is Everything

30 August 2018 - - The DJ List


Songwriter, producer and musician SG Lewis shares his new single “Hurting” featuring internationally acclaimed British songstress AlunaGeorge.

"Hurting is the first single from SG Lewis' forthcoming release Dark. Dark is the second installment from his three-part concept album Dusk, Dark, Dawnwhich we hope will be dropping sometime soon!

“Aluna and I met for the first time in LA earlier this year, and I was talking to her about the album concept, and in particular, Dark. Aluna has been a part of so many dance records that I love, so I knew I wanted to make a club track with her! After we ate burritos and hung out, we made “Hurting” super quickly - the whole process was super natural between the two of us, and she has such an amazing ear for production.” - SG Lewis


This dreamy electropop anthem shows SG LEWIS collaborating with the queen of electronic music, Aluna, of AlunaGeorge. Together, the two create a shimmery dreamscape that reflects on the feeling of lost love. The sweet yearning in Aluna's voice and the longing in her lyrics pair perfectly with SG Lewis' celestial style of production. He incorporates smooth beat variations that add depth to the story Aluna is telling. We love the energy on this nostalgic record. Add it to your party playlist and leave the "Hurting" on the dancefloor!

“Hurting” is the latest in a long run of exceptional collabs for SG, with his upcoming album featuring J Warner, Kartell and a host of others yet to be announced. His recent single, “Better” featuring Clairo instantly became a viral hit last month and was labelled “addictive” by Pigeons and Planes with Hypebeast calling it “the perfect summer jam.” After an incredible run of dates across Europe, America, Australia and Asia so far this year, SG also recently announced a massive US headline tour kicking off at Washington DC’s Union Stage on September 25th and making stops at Brooklyn’s Elsewhere on September 28th & 29th and LA’s The Fonda Theater on October 19th.  

This year, SG Lewis began releasing music from his ambitious three-part album Dusk, Dark, Dawn. In his first Phase, Dusk, SG imagined the trajectory of one night out in club music and is a loving tribute to club and youth culture. Referencing a wide breadth of styles and genres, Dusk used disco, west coast hip-hop and 80s electro to set the scene. Now in Phase 2, Dark uses heavier styles like techno and rap to move the crowd into the night.
