Abomination

    The time has come. After three EPs, sell-out UK tours, and a rapidly developing cult-leader status, the unapologetically uncategorisable Lynks - now signed to the renowned Heavenly Recordings - is ready to unveil their debut album Abomination. Ricocheting between visceral, abject shame and giddy, hedonistic delight, throughout the album Lynks takes us on a dizzying tour of modern queer culture via casual sex, references to Sean Cody, and a one-sided love affair with a straight tennis coach.

    With their inspirations pinballing from Peaches to M.I.A, Courtney Barnett to Janelle Monae, and more, Lynks’ sound is something akin to a club night being thrown in a blender. Each genre touchstone here is hyphenated, and every endlessly quotable couplet takes a surprising turn. Self-written, self-produced, self-effacing and self-aggrandising, the album brings together half a decade’s worth of artistic and personal progression in under 40 minutes.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: Bonkers, hi-nrg synth-pop from Lynks for their debut LP for Heavenly Recordings, brimming with snapping disco and scuzzy distorted beats, all with the almost robotic vocals smeared over the top. Brilliantly mad, but undeniably catchy and full of groove.
