In celebration of Father’s Day this past weekend, Los Angeles artist Banks covered Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes”. Her sensual, electro-soul style provides a unique spin on the original, as she effectively replaces the hit’s dreamy weightlessness with a more quiet, almost mysterious, vulnerability.
Banks shared the track, along with this heartwarming note:
“wanted to do something special for my dad for Fathers day. I have the most vivid memories of him when he as off work when I was little — he would pop open a beer and blast Peter Gabriel’s “In Your eyes” in my living room and we would signet together and sometimes I would dance on his feet. Anyways — love you dad. You are perfect.”
