The last we heard from Alt-R’n’B/Nu-Soul chanteuse Banks – she had unleashed one of 2014’s finest albums in the form of the thoroughly flaw-free ‘Goddess‘. A year later, the California native unveils the first taste of her highly anticipated sophomore effort in the form of a brand new single and video ‘Better‘.
The smoldering new single finds Banks venturing into FKA Twigs territory – she unleashes her inner demons through defiant growls over a gorgeously eerie melody laced with ample layers of synth-heavy gloom. Possibly the most powerful track she’s unleashed vocally till date.
The sinister video is a very Bjork-ish affair – with a gold covered Banks writhing away among some nude women doing their thing.
Love this! Didn’t you know? Demonic shit is so my thing y’all.
Banks’ sophomore album should be out early 2016.
