The last two years have been dominated by the rise of strong female vocalist, lead by the sumptuous Jessie Ware who has been doing her upmost this summer to give festival goers across the world an amazing show, notably at Coachella.

A relevantly new name in this category is LA based Banks who first came to my notice back in April with her sultry and brooding tracks ‘Before I Ever Met You’ and ‘Fall Over’ and later ‘Warm Water’. She’s back with a new track ‘Waiting Game’ which is another brooding song which showcases Banks’ vocal talent in all it’s warm, sultry glory which is backed up by a pounding and somewhat hypnotic synth bed. ‘Waiting Game’ is taken from her upcoming EP which is released later in the summer.
