The Left Banke were a 1960s American pop-music group best remembered for their two hit singles, "Walk Away Renee" and "Pretty Ballerina." The band often utilized what was referred to as "baroque" string arrangements, which led their music to be termed "Bach-rock". Their use of harmonies saw them compared to contemporaries such as The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Zombies, and other British Invasion groups.
