BANKS has always looked beyond music, beyond sound, towards the way she can visually present herself.
Each video, each photo shoot feels carefully constructed, aligning with an over-arching vision of what BANKS should be.
The Shlohmo produced 'Brain' has notched up over one million SoundCloud plays, soaring to the top of the global Hype Machine charts in the process.
There's much more to this than a mere numbers game, though. The slowed down, codeine thick production is matched by BANKS' effortless delivery, her sheer class seeping through each note.
A video for the track has now emerged online, and it's a typically beautiful affair - check it out now.
