BANKS‘s last feature, a Dream Koala-produced remix of Change, found the singer caught in the grips of a dysfunctional relationship with a guy who never failed to find something about her to criticize. Apparently, he’s not such a prize, himself; on freshly-released promo cut Brain, the alt-R&B buzzmaker goes on the offensive, tearing into her man for his transparent efforts to look “hard” and intelligent. Shlohmo, the beatsmith who linked up with Jeremih to bring us 2013’s Bo Peep, crafts an understated, yet subtly menacing synth backdrop for the artist’s caustic verses. Brain isn’t part of a larger album… yet. If and when that changes, though, Booth readers will be the first to know.
Update: We have added the Barnaby Roper-directed visuals for BANKS’ Brain single.
