Elijah Banks ft. Hodgie “No Words”
Elijah Banks will release his new album titled “SPIN” on all platforms this Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2020.
The 9-song album was created entirely inside his Downtown, Columbus apartment and can be considered a carousel of sounds, with rhythmic tunes, vibes and melodies that change throughout.
Banks explains, “I named the album “SPIN” because the situations [in each song] are right on the tail end of it all spinning out of control. I’m in a store and my credit card gets declined, and in “One Hundred” I’m in a relationship and she starts acting crazy, and that’s right before it spins out of control.”
The album has the ability to capture a wide spectrum audience because of the stories it tells and the beat used to tell them. It’s a great album to listen to on the drive home, hype enough to go to the gym, and relaxed to chill at home under blankets or near a fire.
Different from his other music, the songs on “SPIN” include more rap coming from the usual singer.
“Each song has a different vibe. One through 6 is guitar driven, with a lot of natural instruments. Then the “Interlude” you can hear it go into synthy, bassy music. And instead of singing pop tunes, I change the vibe a little bit and I’m rapping more,” Banks says.
A lot of Elijah Banks‘ plans going into 2020 include consistently expressing himself and having more of a personal presence on social media.
He explains, “I’m going to give them what they want this year, they like fun videos and they want to see more of me.”
