Last month, burgeoning British singer-songwriter Jacob Banks unveiled the video for his buzzing single about the 2011 London riots, "Kids On The Corner." Now, he has released his debut EP, The Monologue, which features that song along with seven others. Throughout the tracks, the young talent exerts his soulful voice over production that encapsulates multiple genres including throwback soul, modern R&B, hip-hop, and acoustic guitar and piano-driven ballads. He has been championed as a 'Next Hype' by renowned BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe; does this set do that claim justice? You be the judge by pressing play below and download on each song if you like what you hear.
