SONG OF THE WEEK: BANKS / “WAITING GAME”
story / LOGAN BRENDT
The simplicity of black and white visuals complements the sexy and bare “Waiting Game” by Los Angeles self-taught pianist and singer Banks. The video is directed by the Emmy Award-nominated Francesco Carrozzini and, along with the pounding synths that also occur on the track, it all continues to increase the anticipation of what else we can expect from Banks. With not too much additional time to wonder, her EP titled London will be released through Harvest Records next week. While we could hashtag the lyrics of this song as #popstarproblems, since she’s singing about how the stage can keep you away from the one you love, we’re thinking that those are, possibly, some pretty good problems to have.
