BANKS‘ new release, a fitting continuation of her dark R&B-pop vibe, is a good track to keep on loop as summer fades out. “Gemini Feed” is one of the lead singles off her forthcoming sophomore LP, Altar, which is slated to drop in late September. Lyrics echo the narrative of a relationship toxic both in its waking life and in its malaise, “I tried a thousand times/ I tried to say I love you but you didn’t hear me.” Hypnotic, nearly jazzy production weighs heavy, clapping back as seconds slip by. Dismissed and therein damned love is described in a vocal track so sexy that it almost distracts from the pain, “And when I said I miss you, you never believed me/ And we were so depressive.”
