Tiny Desk Concerts: BANKS


Tiny Desk Concerts often require creative and logistical transformations, from electric bands going acoustic to big bands squashing into a tiny space to many players gathering around a single microphone. But the setting is particularly challenging for vocalists, especially those accustomed to heavy production, like BANKS, whom I’ve written about a handful of times.

She is the latest guest to appear in the NPR office as part of the Tiny Desk Concerts series and her performance is nothing short of amazing. Sweet, sultry and stripped down in an acoustic-esque setting.

Love. Love. Love.

BANKS: Brain


BANKS definitely made some noise last year with ‘Waiting Game’ and her debut EP, “London”, proved that she was an artist to watch.

This week, BANKS makes her first big move in 2014 – a year certain to be a big one for her – with the premiere of her new single, ‘Brain’.
