Fresh from making #2 on the BBC Sound of 2013 poll, duo AlunaGeorge stopped in for a session at the BBC’s Live Lounge.

While not quite the WTF moment that Rustie’s stripped-down versions of material from Glass Swords was, the duo’s cover of Frank Ocean’s ‘Thinking Bout You’ was a welcome surprise. No point lying, we were ready to hate this – the original already seems timeless, after all – but with a quicker pace, bouncy organ and hand-claps to spare, it’s a really fun cover.

We’re not the only ones who kept thinking ‘Claptrap’ at the chorus though, right? [via Soul Culture]
