Between self-producing his upcoming EP, supporting MANSIONAIR, The Antlers (US) and Halfnoise (NZ), Melbourne songwriter and producer LANKS (aka Will Cuming) has somehow found the time to single-handedly produce his own video clip to ‘Hold Me Closer’.

The clip is playful, curious and vulnerable. LANKS sings opposite himself throughout the video against a grainy protection of himself, before turning into a psychedelic montage of black and white projections.

‘Hold Me Closer’ is a taste of his upcoming EP to be launched later in 2015, following his debut EP Thousand Piece Puzzle in 2014.

‘Hold Me Closer’ combines folky high-pitched vocals and primal howls with a rocky rhythm, all the while underscored by ethereal synth beats.

Lush, layered and textural, the track and its accompanying video drifts into the fantastical, but is grounded in enduring pop hooks.

LANKS will be joining Thief on his upcoming national tour and is launching ‘Hold Me Closer’ at a special intimate show at Whole Lotta Love in Melbourne on Friday the 3rd of April.
