Listen: Banks, “Brain” (Prod. by Shlohmo)


Over the past year, Banks has really got into a groove in terms of finding her voice and working with talented producers that cater to her sound. “Brain” is the dark songstress’s first release post-London, her excellent 2013 debut EP, and it’s just as quality as anything we’ve heard from her so far. This time around, it’s Shlohmo who provides Banks with an evocative studio creation of his own. The song drips with a menacing electronic flair, which suits Banks’ sultry R&B vocals pretty seamlessly. The Los Angeles artist is releasing her debut album sometime this year, and will be performing at festivals such as Coachella and The Governor’s Ball in the meantime. But for now just listen, and enjoy.
