LANKS Returns With Dynamic New EP, Banquet [Premiere]

Just over a year after the release of his debut EP, Thousand Piece Puzzle, Melbourne’s LANKS is back with a stunning new effort Banquet. Meshing the deep storytelling roots of folk with glitchy, marvelously syncopated synths and beats, Banquet soars with falsetto vocals and harmonies — all the while, incorporating interesting accents like the trill on “Beach Houses” and the gentle rim hits on “Settle Down”. Where LANKS really shines, though, is finding the delicate balance between minimalistic beats and lush instrumental melodies — each song incorporates many of the same elements, but the arrangements and emphasis leave the tracks feeling singular. Stream the EP above and be sure to pre-order your copy before the July 3 release!
