From last night's appearance in the Live Lounge Late with Phil and Alice, BANKS performed her latest single "Brain" and then an Aaliyah cover in what was her first ever live radio session anywhere in the world — and I have to say it was incredible. As you can hear for yourself, which I sincerely beg that you do, she has a quality that transcends all expectation, otherworldly. She just seems so close to the mic, almost a sign of how much of herself she reveals when singing her songs, and it's a raw exposure of emotion that had my skin tingling throughout, compounded with every lick and vibrato of her seductive, fragile vocals. I've said it before that I really love her Shlohmo-produced track but this acoustic version is something else.
