Stream Jacob Banks' Blues-Filled Effort On 'The Boy Who Cried Freedom'
Jacob Banks, a rising Nigerian-born, British star, has soaked up enough of the blues and jazz to promise “depressing songs” for the masses to digest. Filled to the brim with bitter moans and haunting wales, Banks’ debut project, The Boy Who Cried Freedom, has gripped our hearts and minds in a major way.
The five-track effort, which already has “Unholy War” and “Chainsmoking” out there in the world, is underpinned with soul and incisive production that will hook you as soon as you press play. Released via Darkroom / Interscope, you can stream the project below in the Spotify embed, but he certainly doesn’t need anymore spotlight as pubs like Billboard, SPIN, Complex and Vogue have covered him extensively.
With a host of live shows starting up next week (Apr. 24) in London, New York and London, please, we encourage you to check out Jacob Banks before he becomes a household name and you’re too late.
