As anticipation continues to mount in the run up to the release of her debut album Goddess, today comes a new remix from Los Angeles siren BANKS' of her latest obsession-inviting single 'Drowning', which receives a propulsive, gradually intensifying nigh 8-minute treatment from UK producer and Hypercolour affiliate Tom Demac.
Premiered by Zane Lowe as his Hottest Record, 'Drowning' was instantly hailed as one of BANKS most compelling and progressive-minded tracks, and was quick to garner well over half a million plays on Soundcloud and storm to the top of the Hype Machine charts.
The announcement of the debut album follows a fever pitch build that has seen BANKS emerge as a star in the making as part of a new generation of forward thinking artists. From the acclaimed London EP to two consecutive sold out headline shows at London's Koko to a triumphant performance in front of a thousands strong, packed-to-the-rafters tent at Coachella - a performance that was highlighted by everyone from Time Magazine to The Guardian - it is clear that every transmission from BANKS is waited upon with bated breath.
Goddess will be released September 8th via Good Years in the UK and Harvest Records in the US.
BANKS will be playing Lovebox Festival in July with further festival dates to be announced.
