Tank And The Bangas On Staying Grounded & "Smoke.Netflix.Chill"
New Orleans-based group Tank and the Bangas have a sound influenced by their hometown, blending hip-hop, jazz, funk, soul and even a little bit rock, but it's truly all their own. In their latest single, "Smoke.Netflix.Chill," released on April 20, they brought their playful vibes led by Tarriona "Tank" Ball's upbeat rap and spoken word verses over a laid-back, floating beat.
Ball, along with bandmates Norman Spence, Joshua Johnson and Albert Allenback, sat down with the Recording Academy to tell us a little more about how they vibe together as a group while touring, as well as how "Smoke.Netflix.Chill" came to be.
