On his first Booth feature, Greg Banks made his urban milieu the primary focus, describing a blossoming romance set amidst the hustle and bustle of New Orleans’ Magazine Street. Today, the up-and-coming singer-songwriter goes to the opposite extreme, penetrating straight to the feelings that lie deep within his Soul. Tavares Baldtrip reprises his role behind the boards, layering crisp acoustic-guitar picking and ringing keyboard chords over a shuffling rhythm section to craft a vintage yet progressive backdrop for the singer’s radiant falsetto vocals. Banks keeps it straightforward and sincere on the lyrical tip, celebrating the profound level of intimacy he shares with the object of his affections: “You know me better than I know myself.” Lush, laid-back, and heartfelt, Soul will undoubtedly earn high praise from R&B-lovers who’ve been craving something that’s more than skin-deep. If your interest is piqued, keep it locked for release details on Banks’ forthcoming A Gentleman’s Journal LP, which as-yet lacks a solid drop date.
