BANKS knows just how to hit her listeners right in the feelings. Ouch. The LA princess borrows from the sweet sound of a mocking bird in her new ridiculously melancholic track “Someone New.” WARNING: If you just broke up with your girl or returned to school and left your loved ones back home, grab a few tissues before pressing play.
Comfortably easing her way into the footsteps of her idols before her, Lauryn Hill and Fiona Apple, BANKS serenades her potential listener with this smooth, yet soulful track, with only the echo of an acoustic guitar in the background. “Someone New” will be featured on BANKS’ upcoming debut album, Goddess, releasing September 9.
