BANKS: Someone New

I am SO excited that the anticipation for the release of BANKS' debut record, 'Goddess', is finally over, and let me tell you this: the wait was so worth it. Tomorrow is the US release, and BANKS must all know how long she's left everyone waiting, because she's given us another single just before the album's (US) release, in the form of new single, 'Someone New'.

BANKS - Someone New

I’m so excited that BANKS‘ debut record has finally been released!! Woohoo!

Have you heard it yet?? I highly recommend adding it to your music collection.

In her latest single, ‘Someone New’, BANKS sings about reaching out to a lost love because the timing just isn’t right, pleading for them to wait for her return. Is the timing ever right, though? Hmm..

I really like this acoustic ballad that BANKS has decided to treat us to. Her previous releases have been layered with intricate layers of production from the likes of SOHN and Shlohmo, but ‘Someone New’ shows a more vulnerable side to the singer and her voice is clearly showcased against the acoustic guitar.

And if you really listen to what she’s singing about, you can’t help but feel that pain she’s going through – such heavy matters of the heart.

Baby, can’t you see if there is such a thing
Of loving someone so much that you need
To give them time to let them breathe
But you don’t understand, I wish you understood
Oh, I hope one day you do

Let’s hope those rumours of her heading down under in the new year are true. All my fingers are crossed waiting for that confirmation to come through.
