BANKS Lightens Up On Bouncy New Track “Underdog”

BANKS' Unsettling 'Trainwreck' Video
BANKS continues to ride the creepwave with the latest visual from 'The Altar.'

Well, here’s an unexpected treat for your Thursday! BANKS dropped a new track called “Underdog” and it’s surprisingly upbeat. While this is probably the closest she will ever get to perky electro-pop, the track still has roots in the 29-year-old’s quirky, alt-leaning world. (I mean, she literally barks in the chorus). “Your drunken words were honest and maybe you worry,” the “Trainwreck” singer coos over squelchy synths. “They came out like a faucet, and dripping with words still spraying but you came back as the underdog.”

It’s catchy, full of glorious pop hooks and undeniably feel-good. Adjectives that I wouldn’t necessarily use when describing BANKS’ music. I’m not sure if “Underdog” is the first taste of her third album (a year has passed since The Altar) or just a random gift for fans, but it’s definitely worth four and a half minutes of your time. The singer/songwriter is currently winding up her North American tour, before heading to Europe for a string of dates. Hopefully, she adds “Underdog” to the setlist. Listen below.
