I was first introduced to Banks last year as she was the opening act on The Weeknd’s Kissland tour and she certainly impressed me in her live performance. The singer introduced herself to the world last year with the release of two EP’s titled Fall Over and London, both of which were impressive projects. As she grows increasingly popular, it is only right that Banks has teamed up with LA producer Shlohmo for this massive track titled “Brain”. Shlohmo has worked with the likes of Little Dragon and Jerimih as he is becoming known for his magical R&B gems. This single is another example of that and should only elevate the status of Banks as a rising star with her debut album on the way. 

“Brain” is a track that features the delicate vocals of Banks over chilling production possessing a huge build up. About halfway through the song, Banks unleashes her voice and “Brain” transforms into a loud, powerful jam filled with emotional songwriting. From the distorted vocals to the catchy, chanting hook, “Brain” is a commanding track that justly showcases the passion and talent of Banks. Maintaining her composure during the slow starting arrangement as well as the belted chorus, this song should catch the attention of many while we anticipate her upcoming project. Banks is slated to perform at both Coachella and the Governor’s Ball this year and, needless to say, “Brain” should instantly become a fan favorite.
