Banks is back with a new album, the followup to the excellent Goddess on September 30th and ‘Fuck With Myself’ is our first taste, a a deeper, darker R&B style than we’re used to from her, imbued with convincing FKA Twigs-style atmosphere.
“This song is about being your own best friend, your own mother, and your own lover,” says Banks of ‘Fuck With Myself’.
The video is more agitated and interesting in tone too, than we’re used to.
