Video Premiere: Danny Malone - "Thinkin Bout You" [Frank Ocean Cover]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Danny Malone is an Austin, Texas singer songwriter who's sound was pitched to as "If Beck-era “Sea Change” was actually written by Kevin Devine while he was high as hell and listening to a lot of Fiona Apple." Though his output is not exactly in the Okayplayer lane, he is definitely somebody we've been checking for--and now we have a good excuse to post on him; while his original music is beautifully crafted indie-pop, he has decided to switch things up a bit and cover Frank Ocean's "Thinkin Bout You." With a voice sounding like a more soulful Daniel Johnston, his version of the track retains the power of the original yet with a more relaxed and raw vibe. He and his band seem to be lost in the music in this performance. Consider this your First Look Friday for this week--and if you like what he's doing, be sure to check out his album Balloons, out June 4h. Watch Danny Malone cover "Thinkin Bout You" below.
