Bank Routing: Freshly label-less Azealia Banks now a ‘cool indie chick’, wants to join Interpol


It seems like forever ago Azealia Banks dropped her scorching debut single “212.” The rapper and singer has been caught in major label purgatory over the past few years, but earlier this week was finally released from her deal with Universal, who signed her after “212” blew up in 2012. While Banks’ long-awaited record Broke With Expensive Taste may or may not finally see the light of day, she made other news by appealing to a Banks of a different kind — Paul, of Interpol.

Upon celebrating her new-found freedom, Lady Banks tweeted that she can now be the “cool indie chick” she dreamed of being when she was 14.

“All I need is to be a member of Interpol and my teenage dreams are complete!” she added.


Ms. Banks, you may recall, covered Interpol’s “Slow Hands” back in 2010. Revisit that clip down below after this series of tweets Banks sent out yesterday following her departure from Universal.

It’s Friday, get wild!


Interpol, who triumphantly returned to the scene this week with terrific new single “All The Rage Back Home” off this fall’s El Pintor album, have not responded to Banks’ pitch.

Stay tuned…
