THE GIG POST | BANKS

So last friday I went to see BANKS in concert at O2 Academy Oxford. If you don't know who BANKS is she's a singer from LA and her music is what I'd call electronic RnB with some Lana Del Rey/Lorde/Grimes vibes thrown in too. She's also the queen of wearing all black, a girl after my own heart.


I've been listening to her music since late 2013 and have loved everything so far, my favourite songs are Change & Brain.


The gig itself was sold out but was really short and went by too quickly. Time definitely flies when you're having fun. She was supported by Eclair Fifi on the entirety of this tour. I managed to get to the barrier so I had an unobstructed view of the stage which was brilliant as I'm only 5ft tall although I was wearing heels that night.

She performed songs from her EPs alongside two covers one of Aaliyah's Are You That Somebody and The Weeknd's What You Need. She also performed 2 songs Stick & Goddess from her album coming out in the summer. Her voice is amazing on record but live is truly phenomenal you really feel the vulnerability and the honesty of her lyrics.

Anyway I didn't take too many pictures as I was enjoying myself way too much to get my phone out but here are 2 of them. I did film the songs Stick and Waiting Game but I'm not going to be posting them online.
