LA songstress Jillian Banks could just be the next Adele.
Her debut album is both achingly hip – it’s one of the year’s most
long-awaited according to the serious London music critics who decide
that sort of thing – but also really rather good.
She’s capable of genuinely funky R&B that’s good and poppy enough to
suggest Sugababes at their early noughties peak (Beggin for Thread)
while being smart enough to come up with two or three which could be
her Someone Like You (You Should Know Where I’m Coming From, Someone
New, Under The Table). Her vocals also flit from glacial and detached
one song to sassy and streetwise the next.
A true talent. Get on board now before the rest of the world catches on.
