Lynks’ debut album Abomination offers more of the distinctive blend of high-octane, electro/dance/punk/pop they’ve become best known for. 

Album opener Use It Or Lose It, Room 116 and closing track Flash In The Pan are immediately attention grabbing. Combining catchy hooks, confident lyricism and dancefloor worthy beats, they’re reminiscent of some of the strongest singles we’ve seen from Lynks previously. The lo-fi Tennis Song and leisurely, tongue-in-cheek Lucky give a welcomed change of pace on an album that, at points, feels a little homogenous. 

Keeping you in its grip from start to finish are punchy and playful lyrics, which charmingly span the chasm between self-deprecating and self-assured, and encapsulate Lynks’ Queer experience.
