It could have just been a fantastic coincidence, but I’m fairly certain BANKS broke Soundcloud when she released “Drowning” earlier this week. There could have been a Soundcloud update happening, but with nearly 217k followers and 327k plays in two days, it wouldn’t be a shock if the LA-based chanteuse had that type of impact. Her online following is rapidly approaching Lana levels, but BANKS seems much more likable (and vocally talented). The latest single off Goddess (pre-order on iTunes or Amazon) finds BANKS at her best with pained vocals hovering around the stuttering sample and eerie production. Stream “Drowning” and look for Goddess on September 9th.
