Banks is a really intriguing singer/songwriter from LA. I can’t find a whole lot of information on her at the moment, but the track that first caught my attention is ‘Before I Ever Met You’ – a dark, bass-heavy ode to toxic relationships. Imagine if Rihanna got tired of Chris Brown and collaborated with Massive Attack – this is what I reckon it would sound like.
If you prefer your music a bit more uptempo, then you should listen to the collaboration that Banks did with Lil Silva. I fully expect to hear this played to death during London Fashion Week, and if it’s not, well…that’s a shame. This sounds like such fashion music - I mean, it’s even called ‘Work’!
