Best New Tracks: Banks "This Is What It Feels Like"


Hailing from Los Angeles and unwisely posting her phone number on her Facebook page, Banks is not concerned with perception (or at least that's what she wants others to perceive. Why else would you willing name yourself after the preeminent evil of the zeitgeist?). Top new song "This Is What It Feels Like" proves that regardless of what you think about her, homegirl's got talent oozing from her pores (gross).

"This Is What It Feels Like" is not a response to Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers "You Don't Know How It Feels" like I had initially hoped. Instead it's a breathtakingly lovely atmospheric, trip-hop laced R & B song that normally comes from non-Americans like James Blake, Abel Tesfaye, The xx, etc. Lil Silva and Jamie Woon produced this uber cool song which you can hear for yourself below.
