Though she is still months away from releasing her debut album Goddess on September 9, BANKS is wasting no time dropping tracks from her anticipated first offering. Here we have “Drowning,” which premiered yesterday (May 19) on BBC Radio 1 as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in The World. Produced by Al Shux (who’s worked with Lana Del Rey, Paloma Faith, and Tinie Tempah), “Drowning” is yet another slice of ethereal R&B that conjures the same darkly seductive, angsty vibe that has become BANKS‘ signature sound. “Take it from the girl you claimed to love, You gonna get some bad karma, I’m the one who had to learn to build a heart made of armor,” she croons over Al‘s throbbing production. Another promising preview, the girl puts me through it every single time. What do you guys think?
