Banks Collabs With Shlohmo On New Single ‘Brain’
The LA-based songstress (and super-babe) BANKS is back with another heavy hitting slab of feel-inducing, after-hours dance music of anthemic proportions. This time produced by WEDIDIT bad boy and fellow LA-alien, SHLOHMO.
Keeping herself surrounded by a collection of producers of like-minded sound such as, LIL SILVA, JAMIE WOON, TOTALLY ENORMOUS EXTINCT DINOSAURS, and now SHLOHMO, miss BANKS has been going from strength to strength in the past few months, and this tune really proves it.
Retro saw-synths and processed drum machine samples laden in reverb and filters, the track inches along at almost the pace of a funeral march whilst BANKS pushes the track along with her sombre voice, picking up to triumphant peaks before falling back down into the midst of the hazy synthesisers.
Not only through the bold melancholic fanfare that booms within, but through the large and disabling presence of BANKS’ personality enveloping the track, you can really tell the LA-native is really starting to pick up momentum as an artist.
With a solid catalogue of tracks now encircling the young singer, it will be exciting to see what’s next for BANKS, with all signs pointing to a possible release set for the near future – Here’s hoping!
