Listen To Your Mother
Artist: BANKS
Album: London EP
Genre: RPM
Play: “Waiting Game,” “Change”
CAN’T PLAY: “Bedroom Wall”
Comments: Here we find an artist of a genre that seems to be growing in popularity as of late. It’s characterized by floating and delicate yet soulful vocals placed in an ambient soundscape, tied down by 909 beats. Done well, it can be pretty enticing, and BANKS is giving it her best shot. Occasionally, she gets pretty close. Waiting Game and Change spin sensual, intimate worlds that draw you in and hold you rapt. In other places, however, the formula can grow somewhat tired and trite. If you like Lana Del Rey and The Weeknd and want to hear someone try to be both, give this a shot. It’s worth a listen.
