Formerly Paul Banks & the Carousels, AKA SUPERMOON, P.T. Banks is a dreamy soul pop group from Austin, TX led by songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Paul Banks, with bassist/multi-instrumentalist Christopher Cox and percussionist Matthew Shepherd. Voices as hauntingly beautiful as Paul Banks’ are rare pleasures to hear. Like some spectral singers before him (Roy Orbison and Jeff Buckley come to mind), Banks’ spell casting vocals can transform any venue into a moonlit reverie.

P.T. Banks releases their LP, Moonlight is Sunlight, on February 5th, and their album release show is at Stubb’s indoors on Saturday, February 6th. If you can’t wait until the weekend to be enthralled by their music, check out their Studio 1A set here!
