An alt-R&B buzzmaker hailing from Los Angeles, BANKS introduces her left-of-center sound to our readership with new single This Is What It Feels Like. Beatsmiths Jamie Woon and Lil Silva man the boards on this moody, atmospheric jam, layering springy synths over downtempo percussion to back the singer/songwriter’s understated, yet impressive vocals. The accompanying visuals, created by an uncredited director, bolster the joint’s haunting vibe. Interest piqued? You can find This Is What It Feels Like and much more on the artist’s London EP, out now via Harvest Records. Additionally, fans can currently catch BANKS on tour with R&B hitmaker The Weeknd.
