BANKS is back with a new single called ‘Fuck With Myself’ and a chilling, distressing and even destabilising music video to accompany it. Premiered exclusively during Zane Lowe’s World Record at Beats 1, ‘Fuck With Myself’ is a minimalistic track that delivers BANKS’ breathy vocals over a glitchy electronic beat. “This song is about being your own best friend, your own mother, and your own lover,” says BANKS.
The music video was directed by Philippa Price and provides major American Horror Story vibes. We watch as BANKS, flanked by creepy masked background dancers gyrate and contort their bodies in an underground, abandoned shack. “Cause my love’s so good, so I fuck with myself more than anybody else” she sings whilst fondling and caressing a bald-headed rubber mannequin lookalike. The video is truly as mesmerising as it is menacing.
Following her 2014 debut record ‘Goddess’, BANKS has been confirmed for her second studio album which is set to drop on the 30th of September.
