The land of flashily-produced pop music is one I tend to only glance at from afar, but every now and again I’ll come across an artist (Ellie Goulding, Lana Del Rey, Colette, Robyn) who gets me to step in a little closer. Sometimes it’s stellar vocal work or a particularly great hook that catches my attention, but usually it’s just the nerdy side of me simply appreciating when a song has been superbly crafted. Case in point, today’s track from LA’s Banks. It swirls around like it has no intention on ever letting go of you. I recommend headphones. And maybe an alcoholic beverage. Enjoy.
