During a long study session in my dorm room, I was nodding my head to the “Blogged 50” Indie playlist on Songza into the wee hours of the night. The songs on this playlist are generally new songs that have been mentioned on popular music blogs and it’s here that I stumbled upon “This is What it Feels Like” by BANKS.
Rising LA artist BANKS recently released her EP London featuring the lead single “This is What it Feels Like” and boy is this song impressive. I may need help because I’m honestly addicted to BANKS and this song. Whether it’s on my phone, iPod, or laptop, at least once a day I need to hear the cosmic melody produced by Jamie Woon and Li’l Silva. I’m a sucker for love songs, and when a beautiful woman sings with a beautiful voice to such a beautiful beat, I can’t help myself. Expect to hear the name BANKS a great deal in the next few months.
BANKS is currently opening for The Weeknd on his fall tour and battling for supremacy on Spotify’s Emerge competition.
