Some things don’t need to be defined. Some aren’t meant to be in a box, held in proverbial captivity. They inherently defy a need for classification. BANKS makes music. Great music. Why not just stop there? Allow her to be a siren for a generation, beckoning for self-discovery. She begs for it. Conveying her sound seems almost unfair. It’s built on a simple notion of emotion. Perhaps that explains the near explosion of eager fans frantic to share their own discovery, ultimately propelling this songstress’ art onto almost every major music blog out there and to become the most blogged about artist on Hypemachine this year.
September 2014 saw the release of BANKs debut full length album Goddess. A fine collection of beautifully written songs set to some of the most innovative and interesting production from the coolest up and coming producers in the game. The centerpiece of this release is the current single ‘Beggin For Thread’ the dark pulsing tune really captures the essence of what BANKS is all about.
BANKS will be heading to New Zealand for Laneway 2015 – sure to impress and dazzle Kiwi audiences.
