Banji – Cornflakes

Dutch outfit Banji are back with just about one of the bounciest, most playful releases of the month.

New single ‘Cornflakes’ covers the consequence of submitting to small cravings, and the bigger overall issues this can cause.

“I’m prone to developing little addictions pretty easily. Just the tiny things that get me through my day. The overall subject turned out to dig a little deeper into my own habits – temptations, quick releases, and with that, carelessness. Always being on the lookout for a little bit more than what you already have. Enticement can lead you to concentrate on the wrong things, and make you forget that you always have a choice. Because, if these dependencies develop on a bigger scale, they can have a significant impact on the people around you, and cause you to put up a front. Hiding behind it for the sake of someone else. I was noodling around with these ideas, using metaphors and different voices to inhabit the lines in the song.” – Morris Brandt, Banji

Debut album ‘Freshcakes’ is set for release on 14th October 2022 via [PIAS] Recordings.
