Jillian Rose Banks, also known as Banks, is an American singer, songwriter, and poet who unreleased song “Meteorite” repotedly leaked online off her forthcoming album SERPENTINA.
It took a pandemic lockdown filled with “the finest kind of isolation conceivable” for Banks to lose her old skin and learn to live in the present now. Serpentina was produced during that phase, when the vocalist finally gained complete control of her music and skills. The singer’s new album, which is due out on April 8, is now available for presale.
“I feel like nothing can affect me,” Banks says in an interview with Rolling Stone. “Like a serpent queen, once you shed your skin, you have to keep moving and be present in your new skin.” “That’s what happened to me,” she continues. Banks refers to the months-long period in which she closed the blinds and locked the doors to the financial side of music, instead focusing on composing lyrics, co-producing, and “falling in love” with the whole song-building process. Instead of submitting songs to her management for permission and suggestions, she says this time “I was simply like, ‘This is what it’s going to be.’”
