Banks- Waiting Game
So I'm sometimes really dumb when it comes to keeping up the buzziest of buzz bands. And by that, I mean, I'm not always convinced. I don't know if it's some self perpetuated hipster complex or if I just am not sold very easily on first listen. (Let's go with the latter, because that seems less obnoxious.)
Anyway, Banks has sold me on this track. 'Waiting Game' is cold, vibrating, and unsure. With production from the (also) super buzzing, SOHN the track is desolate, peripatetic, and somehow cathartic. The heartbreaking lyrics and fragile/clear vocals from Banks are just too gorgeous as well.
