John Michael

Los Angeles singer-songwriter Banks continues to stoke our anticipation for her in-the-works debut album with each new song released. On Tuesday (Jan. 28), a new track titled "Brain" premiered on KCRW, and finds the singer working with producer Shlohmo:

After previously collaborating with producers like SOHN and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Banks conjures a haunting arrangement from Shlohmo, and lets "Brain" build toward a ghostly crescendo before releasing her cool composure and belting the chorus. "Brain" is the latest preview of Banks' first full-length, due out later this year on Harvest Records in the United States.
