Hi! Recommend me some artists (hopefully women but not absolutely necessary) like Banks. I will list some of my favorite songs below.

Hello! I LOVE Banks. I think The Alter is my favorite album. I love Gemini Feed, Poltergeist, Mind Games, 27 Hours, Alibi, Drowning, Waiting Game, Brain, and This is What it Feels Like. I like Alaska and Hawaiian Mazes too. Would love recs for soulful singers with a kind of sexy/electro feel.

(I will be following these recs closely, as I also really like Banks and music in the vein of what I think you're describing.) Sexy/electro/soulful and Banks brings to mind the following artists/bands, who you may already be familiar with: Charlotte Lawrence, Kiiara, Sasha Sloan, King Princess, Vaults, Sky Ferreira, Broods. Tove Lo may be a little poppier than you're looking for and you probably already know her but I'll throw her in just in case. If you know these already and can provide feedback on which you do/don't like, I may have more!

You would love Lolo Zouai:

Moi, Jade ft. Blood Orange, Ride, Summers in Vegas. Pretty much all of her songs are good though.

Yuna, Wafia, Bishop Briggs, Hey Violet, Jhene Aiko, older Halsey, Marian Hill. You may really like this Pandora station of mine, as I have a huge love of female vocal downtempo. The station also features plenty of blues inspired stuff, so you may need to drop that.
