Single Serving: Banks – Before I Ever Met You

If you like falling in love, then I’ve got the perfect new artist for you. In fact, Los Angeles’ Banks is almost a sure bet to make your heart swoon. Her latest jam “Before I Ever Met You” blends strong, sultry female vocals with clean, percolating rhythms and crackling synth grooves. Imagine the marriage of Massive Attack instrumentals with a croon that shares more than a slight similarity to Fiona Apple and you’ll have an idea of what to expect. She’s only released two tunes so far, but when has that ever stopped us from getting ridiculously excited?

You can hear more on her Soundcloud page.
