Brain: Are You That Somebody?

BANKS covered Aaliyah’s 1998 hit 'Are You That Somebody?' on acoustic at a BBC Live Lounge session recently. BANKS is a girl that I can listen to constantly without feeling like skipping a track - ever. So it comes as no surprise that she totally nailed a sweet acoustic rendition of the 90s classic.

Brain - Are You That Somebody?

Have you heard this cover?

I didn’t think anyone could pull off singing a song of the beautiful Aaliyah and sound good doing it, but I’ve obviously been proven wrong with BANKS‘ cover of Aaliyah’s ‘Are You That Somebody?’

An acoustic interpretation of the 1998 track for the “Dr Dolittle” soundtrack, BANKS flips this song on its head, especially during the breakdown from the 3 min mark, giving love to the UK and ‘baby girl’ Aaliyah.

I love everything about BANKS – her voice, her songs, her style – all the things.

I was hoping to catch her in the States when I head over next month (Eek!) but that sold out pretty damn quickly. 🙁

Can someone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring her to Australia for a tour?!?! Anyone? Please!
Must. See. BANKS. Live. #BucketList
