OFFICIAL VID: Azealia Banks – Luxury

September 27, 2012

Azealia Banks is clearly becoming a lead fashionista in the indie scene, alongside her gal pal, Lana Del Rey, though with inherently contrasting decades on display. Her most recent videos have been sleek and full of sexy outfits and confident style. In similar vein, the new video for Luxury (Fantasea mixtape) sports that 90’s style easily recognized from her videos for Van Vogue and 1991. It’s hard to believe with all these EPs, videos, and singles out that Ms. Banks still has no debut album on the shelves. The latest rumors are that she’ll have one titled With Expensive Taste drop on February 12, 2013. Please take that with a grain of salt. I have a feeling this date will get pushed around a bit, if not by a lot. With the explosion of how music is marketed and listened to in this day and age, I wonder if eventually there will be SOME artists that will scratch the LP route completely and go with EPs only, as their target audience may be the percentage of the market that chooses to download individual tracks rather than purchase full albums. Interesting thing to wax pensive over… I, for one, am a loyal fan of the LP and the album jounrey, but I can see how this might work better for some artists.
