Following his mid-June release “Grace,” burgeoning UK artist Jacob Banks returns with the stomping and snappy “Monster,” the second offering from his forthcoming EP Paradox.
“I’ve put my heart on the line,” Banks explains to i-D Mag about the 7-track project which he created and produced entirely by himself – from mixing and mastering to designing the artwork. Included on the soul-searching set is the powerful “Monster,” a passionate recourse aimed at the enemy – both external and within.
“This song was born out of a lot anger,” says Jacob. “I wrote it in my bathroom – proper rock and roll! I’m going through life at a very fast pace and I’m learning a lot of things the hard way. One of the things I’ve learnt is that as much as I don’t like it, sometimes you have to become a monster to get what you want and I may well have to become the miracle I’m searching for.”
Currently unsigned, the Birmingham singer sounds like he’s found his power. Take a listen below:
