This is BANKS: Our Exclusive Umusic Interview

Posted on October 13, 2016

After touring with The Weeknd for a second time last year, we finally caught the chance to catch up with the enigma that is BANKS.

In this exclusive Umusic interview, we asked about her experiences on tour and in the studio.

While she holds back on embarrassing moments that went down behind the scenes, she lifts the curtain off her new album The Altar.


BANKS reveals that The Altar is nothing but raw. The bare-faced beauty shows off her freckles on the album cover, which totally compliments the meaning of this album.

Each track on this album is totally transparent. It’s almost like she is revealing a new page to her diary with each song.

But this is just one of many sides to the alt-pop goddess. She reveals that she is always changing, as both a person and an artist.

As for now, BANKS is feeling super empowered with this new album. And we couldn’t agree more. The Altar is almost magical. The type of magic that makes your shoulders wiggle 😉 Check it out, below:
