We Can’t Stop Listening to BANKS’ New Song ‘Drowning’

+

Few things in life are given. It’s a given that we’re all going to die, that nothing matters, and that after I’m done writing this blog post I’m going to curl up into a corner and cry. But brand new in the ‘given’ category is that L.A.-based singer BANKS is going to be on everyone’s playlist this fall, when her debut album Goddess is finally released after months of crescendoing buzz. This girl is going to be big. Take a listen to her latest track, “Drowning,” for a sample of the kind of intricate cyber R&B she specializes in. I can’t stop listening to it. The song’s lyrics, a paean to heartbreak from a wronged lover, are available on BANKS’ official website, as are dates for her upcoming tour. They are all sold out.
