Having sensibly ditched her rather un-mysterious first name of Jillian, this Los Angeles singer has emerged as one of 2014's buzziest prospects. With a dark, dreamy sound to match her pouting, kohlrimmed image, Banks announced herself via-last autumn's London EP – a drowsy affair inspired by several weeks spent attuning to the drizzle and bustle of the UK capital. "I have a very feminine voice when I write, a very womanly point of view," she said of her decision to trade as Banks. "My last name feels strong and powerful. To me, it's almost a bit masculine. I like the dichotomy of the two. Two sides perfectly represented within my name. Femininity can be a powerful thing. " She certainly isn't your everyday up-and-comer. Banks isn't comfortable on a pedestal and, at time of writing, her Facebook page lists her phone number – should you wish to get in touch.
