Video of the Moment #2163: BANKS

Soulful Californian singer/songwriter BANKS is gearing up to release her second album, the successor to 2014’s ‘Goddess’, at the end of September. So what do we know so far about ‘The Altar’? Tim Anderson (Lykke Li, Best Coast) and Al Shux (Lana Del Rey, Tinie Tempah) were on production duties, both of whom collaborated with the young artist on tracks appearing on her debut album. The first single unveiled from the new album has a title with a not so family-friendly word, so I won’t repeat it here.

This second one, ‘Gemini Feed’, is far more palatable and yet it seems that BANKS has purposefully made a controversial video. While it’s certainly tame by rap video standards, I wasn’t expecting these scenes of quasi-serious bondage. I’m sure there’s some artistic reason behind these visuals, but I haven’t quite sussed this out yet. Watch the video for ‘Gemini Feed’ below. ‘The Altar’ drops on the 30th of September on Virgin EMI (UK) and Harvest Records (America). For more on BANKS on TGTF, go here.
