Some things don't need to be defined. Some aren't meant to be in a box, held in proverbial captivity. They inherently defy a need for classification.



BANKS makes music. Great music. Why not just stop there? Allow her to be a siren for a generation, beckoning for self discovery. She begs for it.


Conveying her sound seems almost unfair. It's built on a simple notion of emotion. Perhaps that explains the near explosion of eager fans frantic to share their own discovery, ultimately propelling this songstress' art to the top of Hypem charts.


A toy keyboard is all it took to awaken the inevitable. That evolved into a piano. The notes articulated feelings. Then chords turned to melodies. Heart-piercing lyrics cloaked in lush orchestration.


Now BANKS' EP London applauds her arrival. The four songs introduce this budding self-taught songstress, one whose voice echoes a generation. She writes with a restless urgency, lyrically candid yet relatable, weaving vivid imagery into pop-skewed lullabies as she lures with every note, every chord, every breath.


A hypnotic blend of beats, pianos, echoes and an addictive vocal presence, BANKS slips in and out of genres with an ease so effortless, it once again serves as a reminder to leave your tags behind. Hip-hop, Pop, R&B, Alternative, Electronic… they all live in this very place. And she can be any or all. Or none. A singer. A poet. A pianist. A narrator. An artist.
Toulouse
Toulouse
Female disco trio from Montreal, Canada.
They were made up of studio backing vocalists who decided to team up as a group in 1975.
They were the first bilingual disco act to break in the big time and comfortably sang in English and French.
With the cross-over potential of their self-titled debut in 1976, the act re-released the LP in 1977 with all the vocals re-recorded in English for the American market.
This move proved successful as the act had substantial hits with in the US.
As the disco fad peaked and waned, Toulouse split up in the early '80's.
