    'This Is What It Feels Like' official video. It may just be a Garnier commercial, but I don't care because she is ridiculously gorgeous.

    I was LITERALLY just thinking "I should make a thread for BANKS." Thought "No way PJ would ALREADY have a thread."
    I'm really glad I was wrong, and that I already see some familiar faces on the first page. You all have amazing taste.

    I saw her live last week with The Weeknd and she was phenomenal. Seriously. This Is What It Feels Like was AMAZINGGGGG and I've had it on repeat ever since. She also did an incredible cover of Ex-Factor by Lauryn Hill. Just like....really, she's just amazing.

    Excuse the fangirling.

    She is my favorite artist of 2013.

    I just heard "This is what it feels like" for the first time today and it's glorious.

    Listening to her tracks on her channel, she seems to be the female version of The Weeknd, no? Not entirely but I can feel some similarities in sound.

    She's a much better writer if you ask me.

    'Waiting Game' is fast becoming one of the best things I've heard this year. The throbbing bass, the ghostly backing vocals, the sampled gasping/breathing sound in the background, the dropped pitch bits... EVERYTHING basically.

    A better writer and a much better singer.

    The London EP is so good. I hope she keeps working with TEED and Lil Silva.

    Warm Water and Work are also amazing. All her songs so far are pretty good, aren't they?

    I'm so into Banks, "Waiting Game" is stunning and among my top 10 songs of the year, the whole London EP is amazing, and the video for "This Is What It Feels Like" reminds me of Róisín Murphy's "You Know Me Better" video.

    The London EP is just lush. This Is What It Feels Like and Waiting Game are all kinds of perfect, especially the vocal production.

    Not to mention, she's already managed to work with Sohn, Jamie Woon, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and XXYYXX after only debuting earlier this year; incredible.

    The "Warm Water" Snakehips remix has just drawn me in. Perfect timing, as I've only gotten around to listening to the Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs album recently.

    She's worked with Sampha, too.

    Her list of collaborators in impeccable.

    BANKS quietly slaying faves all over.
     
  14. Re: BANKS - Before I Ever Met You + General Discussion

    So true. She's my favorite thing this year.
     
  15. Re: BANKS - Before I Ever Met You + General Discussion

    Warm Water is the best thing that she has done and Bedroom Wall is another highlight.
     
  16. Re: BANKS - Before I Ever Met You + General Discussion

    I am going to buy her London EP, it seems promising.

    This slice of loveliness just appeared on BANKS' tumblr page.

    She freaking murder that cover, it's so gorgeous. I know that the BBC radio covers are produced and glossy, but it's nice to know that she sounds just as good live (maybe even better) than she does on record.
