Unveiled first on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show earlier tonight, BANKS has released her new single "Brain" ahead of a busy, almost-definitely-successful year. No doubt it's dark, sultry and sexy as always, as she seems to have moulded her identity and aesthetic, but there's a power in her vocals that I'd not heard before as the song drops towards the latter stages. The buildup of sound, produced by Shlohmo, hits really strong and creates a raging climax that's just amazing to hear. She talked about performing it live on the show as one she's looking forward to do, and it's easy to tell why. It seems like a track of real release. And I too can't wait to witness it live when I see the young artist in London for myself come March. Superb single.
