BANKS could have a monster year in store after dropping her impressive London EP and touring with The Weeknd in 2013. And the first step in her new campaign begins today (January 28) with new song “Brain.” It starts off as one of her more nebulous offerings, but then at about the 2:00 mark everything coalesces into a wash of distorted vocals, backing chants and a whoa-oh-oh-oh hook.
Shlohmo was behind the boards for the hollowed-out track, joining the ranks of respected producers like SOHN and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs with whom the L.A. singer has already worked. Listen below, and keep an eye out for BANKS’ debut album on Harvest Records later this year.
