Listen: Banks, “Brain”

tumblr_n02sjpuRd31sercifo1_1280Banks first gained the internet’s attention for her writing tale of defeated love with “Before I Ever Met You”. Since then she has released an incredible debut EP, London, toured with The Weeknd, and started work on her first full-length album. “Brain” is the dark songstress’s first release post-London and it’s just as quality as anything we’ve heard from her so far. This time around, it’s Shlohmo who provides Banks with an evocative studio creation of his own. The song drips with a menacing electronic flair, which suits Banks’ sultry R&B vocals pretty seamlessly. The Los Angeles artist is releasing her aforementioned album sometime this year, and will be performing at festivals such as Coachella and The Governor’s Ball in the meantime. But for now just listen, and enjoy.
