Banks seemingly came out of thin air this past spring with her releases of “Before I ever knew you” and “Fall Over”, instantly gaining my attention and becoming one of my favorite vocalists. Banks gained much more recognition once Djemba Djemba flipped “Fall Over” (read here) and topped the UK charts with “Warm Water“, her collaboration with fellow Englishman, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. This young L.A. pop star is extremely talented and is even opening for The Weeknd on his upcoming tour.
Banks takes a different direction on “Waiting Game” in both the style of her production and her vocal range. Her typical electronic production is apparently non existent when this track starts with the piano chords, however, approximately a minute into the song, the beat expands and becomes darker. Banks also hits those high falsetto notes previously untouched by this sensual pop singer. Banks has a very unique sound and is posed for big things this fall, so don’t sleep on her.
