Directed by LA based artist James Mountford, BANKS’ mesmerising “Better” is our latest video of the week. The song is powerful, with an almost suffocating depth of emotion which I, for one, can’t get enough of. The video captures this aura perfectly, plunging the viewer into a deep pit of carefully crafted visual abstraction.

And did I mention that the song kicks some serious ass? With “Better”, BANKS really steps up to a new level, crafting a profoundly captivating aural experience while hinting at a potentially darker turn in her new material – a development that we here at SoundChips welcome with open arms. Dillon M.
