London based emerging alt-pop artist Naomi Banks shares her latest release, ‘Hearts’.
‘Hearts’ tells the story of a failed romance using poppy touches, jazz influences and an explosive hook capturing the emotional intensity of infatuation and showcasing her incredible musical ability.
As culture moves toward a plethora of uncertain new standards, Banks is doing something radically different by grounding her artistry in the truth of experience and sound.
Listen to ‘Hearts’ by Naomi Banks on the Official F1 Tracks playlist on Spotify.
Speaking on the story behind ‘Hearts’, Naomi said “It was inspired by someone I was dating last year; we both knew it was never going to work, but it was great anyway.”
Her rare flare for everything musical started with scholarships at two leading London music colleges. She later went on to work with a slew of musicians as a vocalist, including Laura Mvula, Lianne La Havas, ELO, Keane & more.
Making the decision to launch her solo career last year was most definitely realised in the
release of singles: ‘Enough’ and ‘Daydream’.
They generated widespread online acclaim including support from Clash Magazine, Female
First, London in Stereo, Women in Pop (and many more) culminating in ‘Enough’ being
added to the BBC Radio 1 playlist.
