Banks has just released her new mixtape, Fantasea, a 19-track album with her standard fiery, danceable beats and fast, aggressive, and sometimes indecipherable lyrics. Banks contextualized the mixtape a bit on Twitter:
I originally started this mixtape with the intention of letting go a ton of old ideas... like songs I started writing but never finished.
Fantasea is almost kind of a first album of sorts....but it happened by mistake.... It's weird.
This is a test run... I tried a lot of cool things... Sounds I thought were progressive, beats made by close friends, different flowsss
Fantasea is not the last we will hear of Banks in the coming months -- her debut studio album, Broke With Expensive Taste, is set to drop in September.
