Banks: Brain

Mahotella Queens, Banks + Shlomo, Habibi and more in the music we tweeted this week

LA-based songstress Banks has already been gaining well-deserved international attention for her seductive, soulful tunes, but this week the Clash magazine cover girl may have outdone herself by teaming up with critically acclaimed producer Shlomo on the new track “Brain.” It’s a perfect pairing; Shlomo plays to Banks’ beautifully haunting vocals through his signature style of provocatively slow beats, for a song that entrances you with its surge of echoey harmonies and arresting lyrics. We can’t wait to hear even more from this already outstanding artist.
