Banks – Drowning

LA singer Banks unveiled her new single ‘Drowning‘, which serves as the follow up to tracks such as  ‘Brain‘, ‘Waiting Game’ and This Is What It Feels Like‘. Having working with producers from Shlohmo to Sohn and TEED, Banks has enlisted the help of Grammy award winning Al Shux (Jay Z, Plan B, Lana Del Ray).

With her unique and emotionally charged vocals, ’Drowning’ presents progressive pop at its finest. Filled with Banks’ trademark sultry vibes, glitchy production and pulsing hip hop beats, ‘Drowning’ perfectly captures that sense of vulnerability.

The single premiered as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record where Banks commented:

“I created the idea of relationship where you feel unheard, like you’re trapped in a box. You know you love this person, but don’t know if they’re right. It’s not a healthy situation. It doesn’t make you feel powerful. You’re a powerful person inside but you feel trapped. You feel weak.”

Banks’ highly anticipated debut album ‘Goddess‘ is set for release September 8th via Good Years and is available to pre-order now. Be sure to catch Banks during her forthcoming tour as well as festival performances from Lovebox to Longitude.
