Blues shredder Jacob Banks is ready for air in his impassioned new song "Chainsmoking." On the latest track from his forthcoming debut The Boy Who Cried Freedom EP, the singer bellows about an irresistible love that's detrimental but addicting. In a soul-shaking timber, Banks sings, "It's getting harder to breath, chainsmoking your love/ Can't be good for my sanity/ Can't be good for my lungs."

“"Chainsmoking" is about understanding that shit may be hard, but we push on any way," Banks told The FADER over email. "I am really happy to share it, the sound mixes old and new vibes which is done across the EP in different colors.”
