LANKS is Melbourne singer-songwriter and producer Will Cuming.
In unusual style, LANKS’ songs evoke folk storytelling within the framework of electronic music. What links the songs is a natural narrative – drifting between tales of vengeful samurais, desert bandits and the lonely deep sea, to the suburban mundane – lost love and daydreams of paradise.
Lush, layered and textural, LANKS is imaginative and, at times, drifts into the fantastic, but is grounded in enduring pop hooks. LANKS is played live as a four-piece and contrasts atmospheric synths with glitchy drums, percussive guitar and Cuming’s distinctly effortless vocals.
