AlunaGeorge – “Body Music” x “Thinkin Bout You” (Cover)

By 01.11.13

Having already included AlunaGeorge’s “Just a Touch” on our list of favorite songs from last year, the UK R&B duo is definitely one of the acts we’re following closely in 2013. It would seem we’re not alone on that front either, as BBC Radio 1Xtra recently handpicked the pair — singer Aluna Francis and producer George Reid — as one of their Hot for 2013 artists.

As part of the announcement, AlunaGeorge hit up 1Xtra’s Live Lounge for a couple of in-studio performances, including a rendition of Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You” as part of the studio’s trademark one original/one cover song set up. Putting a decidedly more upbeat spin on Frank’s hit ballad, the duo infuses the song with their characteristically charming, danceable mix of retro and nouveau influences. Comparatively, “Body Music” — the title track from their forthcoming debut album — is a wounded bit of electrosoul, with Francis and Reid continuing to embrace some of the production quirks of modern electronic music without sacrificing compelling, accessible grooves and melodies.
