Trainwreck takes a trip to the dark side


BY: Michael Perris and Liz MacDonald

BANKS brings us someplace dark, mysterious and a little bit dangerous in “Trainwreck,” the standout track from her second album The Altar.  BANKS has always been a bit of a mystery herself, but she’s said of her latest efforts, “I wanted to be seen. I belted on this album. I feel like more of a fighter on this album.” You can hear it on this single—BANKS’ brooding R&B vocals get more defiant and her signature ominous undertone has an added edge. The result is all goth glam with a twisted mood and a hint of a trap beat. See for yourself in the “Trainwreck” video, above.
