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!!!
Check it out above!
The music world will NEVER forget Aaliyah.
Case in point??! Banks' cover of Are You That Somebody!
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!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!!!
Dat mane!! It’s incredible!!!
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!
They all have their own equally pensive covers — check 'em out (below)!!

So much great new music these days!!!
Say hello to Banks. Yes, that's her name!
And she's dope!
And she's making pop with SUBSTANCE!
Banks reminds us a lot of two other faves, Lorde and Charli XCX.
Check out her moody and haunting Waiting Game above!
