Video: BANKS – "Gemini Feed"


BANKS has shared yet another mind-blowing, incredibly sexy video—this time for "Gemini Feed," the second single from the songstress' second album The Altar, due out on September 30. This bish just keeps slaying me harder and harder! While the striking videos from her debut album, Goddess, were moody and minimalistic, her latest visuals are so experimental and really show her growth as an artist.

I've been listening to "Gemini Feed" nonstop ever since it came out two weeks ago. The video, which includes a BDSM-esque theme, is quite a perfect representation of the meaning behind the song. "I tried to say 'I love you,' but you didn't hear me / And you're passive-aggressive / Convinced me other people, they don't care about me." Ugh, it's amazing how this woman manages to put what I'm feeling into words. Much like Sky Ferreira (and several other artists), BANKS has helped me through some though times. I can't wait to listen to—and subsequently review—her new album, which, judging by its first two singles, is going to be massive.

While we're at it, I hate to be a tease (not really), but I have a special BANKS post planned for early next month. It's a surprise though, so make sure you guys stayed tuned!

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
