Reliably informed

It’s hard to describe Lynks, partly because they are a mysteriously masked superstar of the queer electro punk scene. Hidden away in Cluny 2 on Sunday 27th March, an insane performance like no other will take place for Lynks’ debut tour, where Newcastle will witness a performance usually disguised in London’s underground cult music scene. There is no disguise, however, about the masked fashion of the star – it’s loud, expressive and fun, and makes the whole ego a piece of artwork.

Lynks’ music is typified by exciting dance beats mixed with spoken word lyrics, which are often tongue in cheek, such as hit song Everyone’s Hot And I’m Not: “Everyone’s a model, they’re all Brazilian, I’m a librarian, from Wigan”. There’s a stunningly addictive lyrical craft in the ordinariness of the topics, yet a rare eloquence in their performance.

With huge support on Radio 1 from superfan Jack Saunders and cited as ‘one to watch’ by Lauren Laverne, Lynks is a thrilling emerging artist in the pop rock genre, and this will be a unique show from a truly idiosyncratic artist.

Lynks play The Cluny 2, Newcastle on Sunday 27th March.
