AlunaGeorge - Body Music & Thinkin Bout You (Frank Ocean cover)

Great sounding and rightly popular duo AlunaGeorge are looking forward to a top year with numerous plaudits and an anticipated debut on Island. Fresh from being named second on the BBC’s Sound of 2013 list and one of 1xtra’s Hot of 2013 acts, they performed their eponymous album track Body Music for the first time and gave a surprising (in a good way), up-tempo of Frank Ocean’s solid gold ballad Thinking Bout You that got host Trevor Nelson all excited. Their appearance on the show can be streamed at the bottom of the page.

While you’re at it, you should listen to Nelson when he recommends you listen to their cover of Montell Jordan’s This Is How We Do It in an earlier Live Lounge session.. For a group that excels at making pop that sounds like it’s made – and best enjoyed – tucked under a duvet, they can really rock with rugged mid-90’s new jack swing.
