This week BANKS unleashed the official music video for her latest single ‘Trainwreck’, lifted from her second full-length album ‘The Altar’. The track (and vid) personify exactly what BANKS is about; the most impressive representation of the alt-pop scene currently fighting against all that boring pop (while still maintaining an assault on the charts).
 

Continuing a tradition of unhinged visual glory, the clip, directed by Marie Schuller, excises BANKS’ unpredictable and dark sensuality as she performs in front of an old-school VHS camera for anonymous suited ghouls. It’s uncomfortably comfortable at the intersection of high fashion and David Lynchian fantasy. The music segues from ominous bass, claps, and synths into a hypnotically haunting refrain, “You thinking with your one brain, watch you decapitate. You show me all your letters and I should’ve confiscated. Put my eyes away, and I had to get away.”
 

 
The new single arrives in anticipation of BANKS’ upcoming UK dates in March, which will see her visiting Manchester, Glasgow and London, including a long sold out show at the Roundhouse on March 13th.
