BANKS Is Beautifully Bitter On “Drowning”: Listen

BANKS has just posted “Drowning,” another killer track off her debut album Goddess (out September 9 and available for pre-order here). The song exemplifies the L.A. singer’s ability to translate relationship bitterness into a song that is at once biting and seductive.

Here, she sneers “You are not deserving” before admitting “I’m drowning for ya” over percussion that mimics a babbling stream. The Al Jux arrangement is a bit more muscular than some of BANKS’ other material, with the screwed and looped vocals bringing to mind hints of Phantogram.

Hear the new track below.
