Listen: Banks, “Beggin For The Thread”

Beggin For The Thread

In a year’s time, Banks has gone from a virtually unknown Los Angeles singer to a burgeoning alternative superstar. Her ascent has been steady, with her rise being punctuated by co-signs from the likes of The Weeknd, Pharrell, The xx, and numerous other exceptional musicians. Banks’ debut album Goddess, out September 9, has been heavily anticipated since its official announcement a few months back, and with every new release that anticipation swells. “Beggin For The Thread” is by far her most upbeat track to date, lyrically staying in the same lane that fans are used to, yet replacing the usually ominous ambiance with a lively, synth-driven atmosphere that seamlessly meshes with her sultry vocals.
