3.1 goodErwann S. STAFF | April 6th 20

This indeed is live and stripped versions of Banks' tracks. As Bedex said, tracks 1 and 3 are the most interesting of the bunch as they are less generic and use more instrumentation to provide density. Cool stuff.


3.5 greatBedex | April 3rd 20

Interesting stylistic exercise. I am not sure how much post-processing was done on her voice, but I find it truly impressive how much she is able to replicate the deeply electronic effects from III in this stripped down setting. 1 is a fantastic cover, and much more than what I would expect from a mere 'acoustic covers' EP like this, with not only a stellar performance from Banks herself, but also interesting little instrumental bits and guitar parts here and there that change up the track nicely. 2 feels a bit more flavourless, and 4 also feels more like a generic acoustic cover/ballad but is still quite pretty. 3 has more of a beat to it and could pass a regular track on a regular Banks record, not necessarily this live and stripped EP. Second best track on here imo. 3.55
