I genuinely envy those listening to BANKS for the very first time. Nothing beats the first time. You’ll probably remember it for a long time. I remember mine – a random night in September 2014, sprawled across a half-lit living room with a bunch of friends. Someone had sneaked in her London EP right in the middle of a 3 hour long playlist so it hit us without warning. Those vocals, simply amazing. Nobody moved till those four songs were over.
Better quickly sums up why BANKS blows my mind (plus the visual treat that is the music video). I think a certain percentage of life is complete with her vinyl records in your possession.
