Jacob Banks – Unholy War

Jacob Banks

Jacob Banks

Meet Mr Jacob Banks, a neo-soul artist from the UK.

Updating a genre that’s been part of music for decades, ‘Unholy War’ is a determined track that may just bring soul into the digital age.

Although not a typical indietronica track, we can’t get enough of Banks’ smooth vocals and the track’s punchy riffs and textured beats.

It is the first offering from Jacob’s upcoming EP, ‘The Boy Who Cried Freedom’, out this spring on Interscope Records. He is currently on tour with LÉON in the US, and will be playing SXSW.

Sounds like: Rationale, Aloe Blacc, Rag’n’Bone Man, Emeli Sandé, Sam Smith, Salt Ashes, Ben Khan
