Produced by longtime collaborator Swick

Sydney pop artist Kota Banks has returned with her new single ‘Snip Snip’, the latest collaboration between her and producer Swick. Listen to it below.

On Instagram, Banks – real name Jess Porfiri – said that the song was written when she realised she was keeping people in her life that were having a negative impact on her mental health.

“I wrote this song cos I found that I had a tendency to entertain people in my life out of hope or boredom, who were playing games / negging / impacting my mental state,” she wrote.

‘Snip Snip’ is just the latest collaboration between Banks and Swick. The two had previously linked up on Banks’ ‘Fiorentina’ and Swick’s ‘Decisions’.

The song is also the second single we’ve heard from Banks this year, following the release of ‘Italiana’ back in February. She also took to triple j‘s ‘Like A Version’ studios this year to do a complete rework of Travis Scott’s ‘SICKO MODE’.
