Hailing form Perth, Coin Banks has released his long awaited debut solo release HEADS, featuring Ta-Ku, Homeboy Sandman, 20syl and Atom from C2C, Like from PAC DIV and others. Coin has been featured as the feature artist on Rage, Triple J and RTR FM and had his second single Think Of You added to full rotation on Triple J. His EP has received critical acclaim and has shown what he is capable of a solo artist.

Cutting his teeth in Perth hip-hop group The Stoops, Coin left in early 2012 to pursue new projects – including the Coin & Ta-ku collaborative album, the full-length Letters To The Sun collaboration with producer Akouo, and membership of rising live hip-hop collective UPNUP, whose lone track “Whatever Man” earned Triple J Unearthed profile and a Macklemore & Ryan Lewis support.

Coin has also spent the last year crafting away on some of his best music to date, gearing up to debut as his first solo release in 2014.
HEADS will be closely followed by its companion piece, ‘Tails’. Both releases show Coin Banks striving to make music that is original and carries a social and conscious message, drawing on inspiration from the Native Tongue movement and its modern day equivalents such as Top Dawg Entertainment. Coin is currently working on his full-length album, with Ta-Ku and Nottz listed as contributors
