Music Video: Jacob Banks - Unknown
Truly one of the most gifted artists to have emerged out of the U.K. in recent years, Jacob Banks' music represents the pinnacle of what should be aspired to when it comes to artistic and creative integrity. Cathartic, passionate and uninhibited, he draws on a deep well of intensely felt emotion and profoundly honest self-reflection to deliver the insight and intelligence of his lyrics through the awe-inspiring grandeur and gritty, soulful power of his stunning voice. Having showcased the breadth and depth of his talent with 2013's 'The Monologue' EP, he returned last year with the fury, poignance and deeply personal introspection of his magnificent 'The Paradox' EP. Back with his newest, co-directed, video from the EP for the piano and strings of 'Unknown', Banks conjures an artful, moving emotional choreography for the visual narrative's profound revelation as the gruff rumble of his remarkable voice soars with an imploring vulnerability.
