LISTEN: BANKS Shares Her Heartbreak on New Single: “Drowning”

By Staff on May 20, 2014

 


BANKS is one of those rare internet superstars that seems to have appeared out of thin air and into the buzzy stratosphere within a matter of months; in this case, the hype is well-deserved. The soulful electro-pop maven is final set to release her debut album, after having her Soundcloud account discovered by Zane Lowe and being nominated for awards by BBC and MTV.

 

Her latest single from the upcoming Goddess is “Drowning,” a sleek but biting anthem of bitter heartbreak.
 

Like a combination of CHVRCHES and Lana Del Rey, BANKS’ sultry voice makes even the most condemning lyrics (“You tried to lie, I can see that you don't need me/All your words, they have been cursed with dishonesty”) sound sweet.

 

Her scorn is our sonic pleasure, and we can expect more to enjoy when her album drops September 9th.
