BANKS Announces New EP “Live And Stripped”, Premieres Studio Live Video for “Drowning”
- American singer-songwriter BANKS announced her new EP “Live And Stripped” will be released on April 3rd.
The EP comprises of 4-track including live, acoustic versions of previously-released songs.
Every song will be accompanied by a performance video, all of which were filmed at the legendary Capitol Studios in late 2019.
From the EP, she dropped studio live performance video for “Drowning”. She performed the song with 1 take and 1 mic.
The song was released in 2014 from her debut album “Goddess” and inspired from her friend's story.
At that time, BANKS said, “They all have a sense of it. I have an EP coming out [in autumn] and “Drowning” is inspired by my best friend who was having a hard time with someone. I’m able to write about it because I can connect it with my own experiences. It frustrates me so much and saddens me so much because I’ve gone through [what she went through] as well. I know what it's like. That first break up that I told you about? That was eight years ago. I still write about him. I feel it so hard.”
