The Bankes Brothers Share Reflective New Single “C’est La Vie” off Forthcoming Debut ‘In Waves’ EP


Victoria, BC four-piece The Bankes Brothers – brothers Nelson and Morgan Bankes on vocals and guitar, lead guitarist Carson Cleaver, and drummer Gray Oxley – are readying the release of their debut In Waves EP, a six-track shot of dopamine spilling over with irresistibly catchy melodies, exhilarating vocals, and joyous indie-rock instrumentation. Produced and recorded by indie legend Steve Bays (Hot Hot Heat, The Zolas, Mounties), In Waves culminates the band’s wide-ranging influences in a way that defies sonic parallels, yet remains welcomingly familiar.


C’est La Vie,” the third single to be shared, drew inspiration from artists like Paul Simon Graceland, Talking Heads, and Little Joy to take on more of a Lo-fi character that helps distinguish the song in the collection. The Bankes Brothers approached the lyrics with a more phonetic approach to tell a story that also gets listeners moving.
