Watch BANKS’ Rainy-Day R&B ‘This Is What It Feels Like’ Video

Banks, "This Is What It Feels Like," video, the Weeknd

L.A. electro-R&B singer BANKS keeps inching a little bit further into the limelight. The Weekend’s current tour opener is still fairly mysterious, but the latest video from her London EP at least shows her in color rather than the black and white of the previous clip for “Waiting Game” — a relevant title, come to think of it. We’ve already noted that “This Is What It Feels Like,” produced by Silva and featuring vocals from U.K. singer Jamie Woon, splits the difference between contemporary U.K. dance-pop and millennial U.S. R&B. The video (via Noisey) unobtrusively complements the mood, with BANKS singing beside ruffled bedsheets as it rains outside. It’s another intriguing glimpse of a promising vocalist.
