Melbourne multi-instrumentalist LANKS releases new track twentyseven today, the title track off upcoming debut album releasing on April 27th via THAA Records. Full of sweet electro-pop promise and hope, twentyseven is an intimate personal expression of fears, the pressure we feel to be something and somebody, and the love we need to help us make peace with it all.
“I always had the age of 27 as a milestone in my mind, because many of my heroes had passed away at that age and already achieved a lasting legacy,” shares LANKS’s Will Cuming. “This album is a message to myself of humility as I confronted that fear of failure (that was excessive and unhealthy), challenged my own idea of success and questioned what sort of person I aspired to be. The most in-focus connection throughout is my romantic relationship, culminating in a final affirmation of my feelings and ultimately leading me to my engagement. I’m a lucky man.”
Now a married man with a debut album coming out next month, a growing reputation and gorgeous body of work, wraps up his My Own Mystery tour this week with a sold-out show in Brisbane and no-doubt a sell-out coming up tomorrow in Melbourne, WildnFree thinks LANKS has passed the 27 milestone with an A++ . Anxious self-doubters take note, everything is possible if you work consistently hard, confront your worst fears and hopefully, if you’re very lucky, find the love you need to help light up your path.
