New Music: AlunaGeorge Cover Frank Ocean's 'Thinkin Bout You'

Two's Company: AlunaGeorge's bring an exciting chemistry in their sound to the table for 2013 

What can we say here, well, this is quite simply a stunning piece of work by a stunningly creative ensemble that go by the name of AlunaGeorge, if you don't already know. The London-based duo take on Frank Ocean's 'Thinkin' Bout You' providing their own harmonious twist to the proceedings, and it's one of those renditions that just effortlessly provides you with that 'feel good factor'. We've been monitoring the progress of AlunaGeorge steadily throughout the past year, and we've been pleased to see them gain substantial mainstream notoriety, including the accolade of finishing runners-up in the BBC Sound of 2013 longlist second only to HAIM. Apparently this version of 'Thinkin' Bout You' was recorded at the 1Xtra live lounge recently, with their debut album set to be titled Body Music and it is well and truly in the pipeline on-course for a June 2013 release date.
