It's no secret that the Stereofox team are big fans of LA songstress BANKS. (if you've not heard of her, where you been?) So when her recent BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge session popped up on my soundcloud feed, it was a given that we'd have to feature a track.

Out of the two tracks currently up, I chose to feature the acoustic cover of R&B legend Aaliyah's track 'Are You That Somebody', the other being an acoustic version of her track 'Brain'. BANKS is about as versatile an artist as you could wish for in the modern age, no more at her peak than when  she's turning out incredible covers like this one, she even has a stab at the rap! Grab your polyester flairs and crop-tops folks, we're heading back to the 90's.
