Video: Banks-Lovesick

“I knew your love, before you kissed me.”

I am in love with this album but this song is my jam right now. Mainly because of what it says and the feelssssss. ‘Fuck with Myself’ is my anthem and ‘Mind Games’ is my third runner up. This is a solid album by Banks, although I never expected less of her. She never disappoints. She reminds me of a living Penny Dreadful because her music is not the norm and her aesthetics aren’t either and I’m obsessed with her darkness. Definitely an artist I will always look forward to. If you’re new to her, you’re late, extremely late. Get on it.

Banks–Before I Ever met You

Effortlessly balancing her gift for honest, poetic perspectives on love and humanity with a voice that gained her overnight attention from the music industry’s most important curators – Banks is poised for massive things in 2013. Drawing from inspirations like Fiona Apple and Miss Lauryn Hill, Banks focuses on the duality of soulful earthly emotion and ethereal atmospheric sounds. The Los Angeles native and self-taught pianist, vocalist, and songwriter will release her debut EP on IAMSOUND in early 2013.
