BANKS is an American singer, songwriter, producer, poet and director. Her highly anticipated fourth album, SERPENTINA, released April 2022, sees the musician enter previously uncharted territory in every sense—from sound to lyrics to visuals, and everything in-between. Releasing her debut album Goddess in September 2014 to critical acclaim and commercial success (the record charted in the top 20 in seven countries including North America), it firmly established her sonic signatures: alternative pop inflected with touches of the off-kilter R&B she grew up with. BANKS returned in 2016 with The Altar, a darker and more intense refraction of the themes she explored on Goddess, also released to widespread praise and multiple top 20 placings in both the U.S. and abroad. Then, for her third album in 2019, she unveiled the exhilarating, synth-heavy lead single “Gimme,” produced by Hudson Mohawke, as the lead single for the aptly titled III, marking yet another step in her progression as an artist with its more experimental production flourishes and more mature lyrical themes. Following the success of III, she embarked on her biggest tour yet in support of the record, spanning 33 sold-out dates in nine countries. A muse for fashion houses such as Chanel and Dior, she has graced front-row seats at fashion shows and the covers of multiple high-end publications around the world. She has performed at many of the world’s biggest festivals (Coachella, Lollapalooza), at the prestigious Guggenheim in NYC, as well as on multiple late night television shows over the years (Colbert, Kimmel, Meyers).
