BANKS- Beggin for Thread

7/30/2014 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

Shoutout out to C̶h̶a̶r̶l̶o̶t̶t̶e̶ ̶K̶a̶s̶s̶a̶m̶i̶r̶  BANKS (the resemblance is uncanny) for being T4L's inaugural post! And she hasn't failed to reach her potential like some of our other early-post artists (Azealia i'm looking @ u and ur 212 Mickey Mouse sweater). But actually, this is the BEST BANKS song i've heard yet and it's SOFUCKING catchy from it's first ominous synth hit. This song is destined to play in the most angsty part of a rom-com, like a girl running frantically in the rain after a break-up or a man in a FUGLY patchwork turtleneck spazzing on a street (aka that scene in Love Actually after Keira Knightley finds out that Andrew Lincoln has basically been stalking her). 

BANKS' adds her gloriously eerie vocals to the forefront of this hazy, synth-ladened melody and twinkle bells in the background never made a song worse, yah know? Of all the singles we've heard off her upcoming album (her album's out in September, but at this point, like whose isn't?), Beggin for Thread has the most radio-friendly feel and maybe soon we'll be jamming to this between tolerating Ryan Seacrest's radio commentary (is Seacrest a dated reference? Is radio itself a dated reference? Now that i'm post college, i can't keep up with dem kids. THERE ARE YOUTHS EVERYWHERE!)
