Shanks is a new artist from both Toronto and LA that’s been making both R&B pieces, hip hop, and even an Ariana Grande sampled pop song.
Through these experiments, it feels like he’s found his sound on last week’s release, Get You Alone. “Sex on my mind/ thinking about when I get you alone/ we already know it’s going down when I get you alone,” he sings during the intro before a sharp synth swings in, increasing the tension in his words and anticipated actions. A moment of clarity enters followed by a seductive bass line and Shanks’ crooning about getting alone with you. You know which playlist to put this on. Get it.
