Friday Fascination: LANKS


You didn't hear me wrong, this week's fascination goes by the name of LANKS aka Will Cuming from Melbourne, Australia. If James Blake, Alt-J, and Glass Animals created a super-group - it would sound quite similar to LANKS' debut Thousand Piece Puzzle EP (released back in June.) What's amazing about LANKS? His music is equally mesmerizing as it is easy on the ears, literally. Plus, according to LANKS' Facebook page, this project hasn't even been around for an entire year - yet has released a grip of music thus far. 

Highlight of the EP? Hard to pick, but if I had to choose one track - it would definitely be "Green Light." It's as charming as the opener "Boniki" but flows to a different tune with the help of a guest female vocalist. 

Most recently, Cuming released "Brave Man" as a single in spite of a brief single launch tour taking place next month in Australia. If you happen to be in the area, grab tickets here. "Brave Man" easily reminds me of a Radiohead groove (which happens to be a big influence on LANKS.)
So what are you waiting for? Hit up LANKS on BandCamp and grab his music while you can, because I have a great feeling about the future of this musician.
