Each time a musician comes in to perform on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge Session, they must always play two songs: one single, and one surprise cover. Last night songstress BANKS stopped by while on her European tour, and played acoustically an intimate version of the new single Brain, and Aaliyah’s hit Are You That Somebody

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
