Victoria, BC four-piece The Bankes Brothers have unveiled their newest single, “Things I’ll Never Learn,” lifted from the upcoming EP, In Waves.

For those new to the group, The Bankes Brothers—consisting of brothers Nelson and Morgan Bankes on vocals and guitar, lead guitarist Carson Cleaver, and drummer Gray Oxley—sound like the youthful high of a late-night romance and the blissful stagger home the next morning.

The sum of their forthcoming In Waves EP’s parts is something fresh, exciting, and uniquely vibrant within the current sea of sleepy vocals and sedated guitar tones.

Commenting on the latest single, the band shares:

“Our new single, ‘Things I’ll Never Learn,’ speaks loud and clear to the age-old problem of being drawn to entanglements of the heart that just shouldn’t be. It rings true with all of us in the band as we think back on broken hearts from relationships that we just weren’t suited for.”
