Following a collection of EP’s and a debut album in 2018, LANKS (Will Cuming) returns with the double LP SPIRITS PT. 1 + 2. The opening single on PT.2 is ‘The Silence’ where LANKS pleads to “save our souls” with beautiful arrangements that build with urgency. On the single, he offered:
“I co-wrote this song in 2018 with my cousin RY X out in a very wild and beautiful area near LA where he lives. I’ve felt connected and inspired by Ry’s artistic works the past few years, and with that kind of universe in mind, I went back to Australia and produced this one to emulate the same sonic realm. My good friend Xavier Dunn added the cello after I sent it to him – I love giving good musicians freedom to immerse themselves in something and bring their own voice to it.”
Written and recorded during lockdown in his new home in Brooklyn, LANKS is joined by a group of musician friends from Australia including RY X, HWLS (Flume), and Alice Ivy. Listen to the project right here.
