BANKS has me ‘Beggin For Thread’ on repeat

BANKS has me ‘Beggin For Thread’ on repeat
November 2, 2014 MICHAEL KNUDSEN


A few weeks ago I caught BANKS‘ second sold out show at The Wiltern, which also was the final night of her Goddess Tour. I caught 26-year-old Los Angeles based singer / songwriter BANKS (Jillian Rose Banks) last December at Hollywood Forever‘s Masonic Lodge–and although I was quite impressed by her vocals–nothing grabbed me that night. Fast forward to September–BANKS drops her debut album, Goddess (on Harvest Records), I fall completely head over heels in love with it. Hands down, Goddess is one of 2014’s best releases–definitely nabbing a spot on my top favorite albums of the year list. So I was beyond excited to see BANKS again–this time knowing Goddess inside and out! She put on an excellent show and I was super impressed by how the crowd responded to her, everyone was really into everything BANKS managed to serve up on stage. Ever since the show I cannot stop listening to the track “Beggin For Thread,” easily one of the album’s best cuts–catch both the music and lyric videos below–but be warned you will not be able to get this song out of your head!

If you haven’t listened to Goddess yet–do not miss out on one of 2014’s tightest releases, the production is truly meticulous–you’re guaranteed to become obsessed like me. Pick it up on iTunes or better yet, purchase the luxurious 2x LP vinyl edition which includes a digital download as well.
