Love Inks is a minimalist pop group making music that harkens back to early 80s UK (Marine Girls, Young Marble Giants) and David Lynch’s Roadhouse.
"Somewhere between the sparse feel of Young Marble Giants and the whisper of the xx" TLOBF
The group’s sleek, needle-precise sound comes distinctly from Austin, Texas. It is a combination of guitar, played quietly but as if from a 12-foot deep well, and bass, creating both tension and melodic releas...e when necessary, in conjunction with an electronic drum machine. The triangle is only completed by Sherry LeBlanc’s voice, which leads the listener through every song — whether it be mellow or dark.
These three elements together make up LOVE INKS. Their use of silence and their approach to instrumentation, while sometimes coming across as confrontational, makes their music direct and sincere.
The band releases their new album EXI on 8th September on Republic of Music. It sees them returning to the minimalist aesthetic and sound fans fell in love with on Love Inks' 2011 debut E.S.P.
