When you hear the name “BANKS”, you probably don’t immediately think of a delicate-framed, gorgeous singer-songwriting lady; maybe a rapper, right? But BANKS is the name of the 25 year-old woman who is taking the music industry by storm. The model-esque singer based in Los Angeles, breathes raw emotion into her music through her smoky, and at times poignant vocals.
Stylistically, she blends elements of rock, new-age, electro, and down-tempo, for a perfect blend of soul-bearing chill music. She recently released “This is What It Feels Like”, produced by UK-based Lil Silva, and my favorite man, Jamie Woon (who also provides additional vocals).
She is currently supporting The Weeknd on his North American tour (which began September 6th), which is sure to be a musical treat! Get into her!
