Imagine naming yourself Banks in 2013. Hasn’t the mysterious Los Angeles vocalist behind this sultry trip-hop-pop track ever heard of word association? Banks are so evil you might
as well call yourself The Findus Horsemeat Yewtree Piers Morgan Experience and be done with it. No need to bail out on this new talent though, as ‘Before I Ever Met You’ sounds like Massive Attack doing a Bond theme, with pouty vocals, too-cool clicks and a deep, sultry beat.
