‘Wolfpack’ is the new single to be taken from TALA’s EP ‘MALIKA’, which is out now via Columbia Records.
Not posted anything from Banks for a while, so here you go.
And so we are nearing to the top spot for this year’s BBC Sound of 2014! I’m not surprised in the least that Banks is third – the likelihood of this talent becoming a household name over the coming months is certain. Featured a year ago on here, she’s been nothing short of phenomenal in her output. Tomorrow we find out who is runner up in the poll.
I wait all year to see this list get published. Only because it’s interesting to see how many people have already been featured on here.
This year’s mix is a lot better than last year’s in my opinion, and is definitely more pop-orientated than previous ‘Sounds of’. Here’s the full list:
- Banks – first featured February 2013
- Chance The Rapper
- Ella Eyre – first featured April 2013
- George Ezra – first featured December 2012
- FKA Twigs
- Chloe Howl – first featured December 2012
- Jungle – first featured September 2013
- Kelela – first featured October 2013
- MNEK – first featured May 2010 (also check out the interview)
- Nick Mulvey – first featured May 2013
- Royal Blood
- Say Lou Lou – first featured May 2012 (as Saint Lou Lou)
- Luke Sital-Singh – first featured July 2012
- Sam Smith – first featured January 2013
The top 5 will be revealed daily starting 6th January 6th 2014, with the winner crowned on the 10th. I’m not putting any guesses on who will win this time round though!
I’m starting the week with something dark and epic and stunning. This new one from Banks is as moody as you can get for a Monday morning.
How slick is this remix for Banks? Perfect for a summery Sunday.
Track of the week. Dark and broody electro with a big RnB voice. Check out here.
