Banks Comes Up For Air On New Track ‘Drowning’
BANKS - Drowning (Original Mix) [Rough Trade/Harvest]

BANKS continues to provide promising previews of her debut album Goddess as she inches closer to its release. After already releasing tracks like Brain and Goddess, BANKS strikes again with her latest release Drowning.

Having already worked with Shlohmo (Brain) and Lil Silva (Goddess), BANKS enlisted the help of renowned producer/songwriter Al Shux to produce Drowning. In the past, Shux has produced for artists like Jay Z, Lana Del Rey, Lily Allen, and Alicia Keys. Shux’ work on the track Empire State of Mind earned him a Grammy in 2011 for Best Rap Song. Drowning consists of that signature hip hop and soul-infused style that Shux is famous for, giving BANKS an even darker, but more playful feel.

Drowning features a mesmerizing mix of hypnotic beats and soulful synth that get swallowed up by a sea of scorned and seductive vocals as BANKS laments over a wasted relationship.

Goddess is out September 9 via Rough Trade/Harvest.
