Jacob Banks shared “Monster” to much fanfare in July, and justly so. The single is quieting for all its loudness, a song that proudly asserts itself a chant-laced anthem with Banks’ uniquely soulful voice dead-center.

The singer, along with guest rapper Avelino, speaks to those who occupy a place in our forgotten pasts, paralleling death and the pains of life and love.
