BANKS: Waiting Game

Missy Elliott's KCON debut, Wild Ones' sporty music video and more in our look at the songs we tweeted this week

LA-based singer BANKS manages to combine sultry with spooky on her recently released single “Waiting Game.” From her debut EP London, set for release 10 September, the song features haunting background hums, blown-out beats and throbbing vibrations. Part trip-hop, part dark R&B and bleak pop, “Waiting Game” was produced by Sohn, and BANKS’ alluring, sweetly melancholic vocals—describing a despairing love affair—dance over it beautifully. A Francesco Corrizini-directed video was released this week, with appropriately moody slow motion movements, ash and shadowy shots to perfectly match the essence of the track.
