Monster Feat. Avelino by Jacob Banks
Jacob Banks is well known for blending elements of alternative and early blues with R&B. “Monster” featuring Avelino is a poetic single to the likes of Bastille and Madisen Ward & the Mama Bear. Organic drums mesh will deep bass hits and clapping to create complex rhythms. Piano chords carry the song while the non-verbal vocal hooks create the overlying melody. “Monster” is an intelligent musical representation of a real monster’s complicated nature. Something scary yet potentially wonderful hides in an unfamiliar body, ultimately containing a magnificent surprise.
