With her second release of the year the North London-based singer/songwriter will have you reaching for repeat.
The follow-up to the stirring, laidback "Gone", Banks' new single ups the tempo and raises the temperature. From her start as a backing vocalist for the likes of Laura Mvula and Lianne La Havas, to her growing body of eclectic solo material, Naomi Banks is creating something special with her commanding songwriting and captivating voice.
Letting her intuition lead the way, Banks' fusion of soul, pop, jazz and electronica has always managed to manifest itself in new and exciting combinations with every release. "Closer" is another frame of Banks' sonic kaleidoscope. With every turn her diverse influences and inspirations create a tanatlising, unique cocktail of sound and emotion.
""Closer" is about being attracted to someone and not overthinking sexuality, just going with what feels right," Banks explains.
While live shows are off the cards at the moment, Banks is set to perform a live 360 studio session of "Closer" later this month, if her support slots with Rachel Chinouriri and Celeste are anything to go by, this will be unmissable.
Don't overthink this one and let "Closer" whisk you away into a world of simply going with the flow.
