Produced by Shlohmo

The reign of BANKS is almost at hand.

Lauded in almost every critical poll worth mentioning, Clash were so seduced by the American artist that we placed her on our first cover of 2014.

Hooking up with a number of guest producers, BANKS has begun moving in different, daring directions. Heading back into the studio, the singer recently paired off with Shlohmo for an intimate, pared down cut.

'Brain' is sluggish, languid and more than a little sensual as Shlohmo seems to caress each note. BANKS delivers one of her most emotionally raw vocals to date, with the two Los Angeles based artists intertwining to powerful effect.

Listen to it now.

BANKS is set to visit the UK in March, recently adding a London KOKO date to her itinerary. In full, the tour dates run as follows:

20 Bristol Trinity Centre
21 Birmingham Library
23 Glasgow O2 ABC2
24 Sheffield Leadmill
