Banks started writing and playing music after her parent’s divorce, and found that immersing herself into that music and teaching herself the piano was a way to cope with the sadness and pain. She creates soulful, deep music, and portrays an aura of excellence and luxury while at the same time remaining approachable and relatable. She explains that she turned to music at the time because she felt an overwhelming sense of helplessness and loneliness, which is the perfect description of what you feel when you listen to her amazingly written lyrics. Banks’s quivering, beautifully shrill vocals are pure brilliance when put up against pulsating synth beats, and it’s truly breathtaking to listen to. “Waiting Game” is from Bank’s debut EP, London, which came out in 2013.
