NEW SINGLE OUT SEPT 8TH ON MONKEYTOWN
A MATTER OF TIME feat. Elizabeth Bernholz
Voice smelted with melody and pulsing chords, propelled by pistons of bass, A Matter Of Time is the new single Alex Banks. A haunting, yet hip bumping requiem featuring the extraordinary vocals of Elizabeth Bernholz aka Gazelle Twin, this is the latest remarkable cut from Alex’s debut album Illuminate.
Signed to the illustrious Berlin label Monkeytown, Brighton based producer Alex Banks has wowed critics with the sheer creative depth and ambition of his debut. Two years in the making, it is at once rich in production artistry but ready for the dancefloor, seasoned with melodies and the leaping vocals of Gazelle Twin’s Elizabeth Bernholz, yet boasting a sonic heft and ambition on a par with the likes of Jon Hopkins, Daniel Avery and Nicolas Jaar.
