BANKS is my ultimate love. This post is obviously late in terms of when The Altar came out, however, it’s my go to anthem album. BANKS is my go to artist. She’s inspired me in endless ways and has made me so in touch with my dark side. Every song of her’s evokes feeling and emotion. There’s so much rawness attached to her voice and in the way she expresses herself. I’ve been lucky enough to see her live thrice. After seeing her most recent set for The Altar tour, I tell you, I left feeling incredibly liberated, creative and ready to conquer the fucking world. It’s pure performance art, she leaves her heart and soul right there on the stage and takes you with her on this incredible journey exploring all her insides. BANKS’ style, if I had to put it into words, is a mix between moody alternative pop with shades of contemporary R&B, it’s killer. Especially live. I was blown away by how enigmatic she and her dancers were. While you’re at it, check out her other music as well; the four-track EP, London and the album, Goddess. You won’t be disappointed. 😉
