Listen To This: Down On Your Knees!

| Filed under: Listen To ThisBanks (singer)

The fact that Charli XCX and Lorde have found mainstream success gives us hope that other pop girls operating to the left-of-center can make it big too!

Girls like Banks, who consistently release great song after great song, slowly building a passionate following, and go from strength to strength.

If you dig either of the two girls above or Lykke Li, then you will really love Banks's latest single, Begging For Thread.

This may be her best song yet!!!

Alternapop greatness!!!

Check it out above!

It's been over a decade since the late songstress' song hit the airwaves, but it is still one of the best jams like…EVER.

And Banks' haunting voice paired with those gorgeous lyrics gives us major goosebumps!

We want to be that somebody!!! LOLz!

Wow, Lorde! The Hair Looks Better Than Ever Here!

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionHaimV MagazineCover ShotLordeBanks (singer)

Lorde covers the March Music Issue of V magazine along with Haim, Banks, and Say Lou Lou!

Dat mane!! It’s incredible!!!

While Lorde’s tremendous head of hair continues to amaze us on a regular basis, it’s her V magazine cover that REALLY displays the full capability of her tresses!

The Grammy-winning 17-year-old rightfully takes her place on V mag’s March Music Issue, and is featured in a headshot with hair SO large it doesn't even fit in the frame of the pic!!

The pensive black and white photo was taken by famed fashion photographers Inez and Vinoodh. And while she appears to be the sole cover star, she's not!

The magazine also features other musicians, whom they've dubbed, “the next wave of alternative pop voices”. These artists include: Haim, Say Lou Lou, and Banks!

They all have their own equally pensive covers — check 'em out (below)!!

We are soooo feeling Banks!

The production is interesting but not distracting. Her voice is sweet but also sad.

This is great music to make love to or… make you depressed! Ha

Check out the lush and moody Brain above!
