Following the release of their third studio album ‘Exi’, minimalist Austin trio Love Inks have revealed their beautiful new video for ‘Shoot 100 Panes of Glass’ ahead of their upcoming European tour this autumn, which includes a run of UK dates, with a London show at The Shacklewell Arms on Dec 2nd.
LA- artist Cassandra Lee Hamiltion took the lead single ‘Shoot 100 Panes of Glass’ from Love Inks’most recent album and went on to say “the video is a gut reaction to a heart wrenching song where you want to serve it’s subtleties as well as it’s melancholy pop and so you just keep putting pieces together until you feel like you’ve done just that”.
Love Inks are a minimalist group making music that harkens back to early 80’s UK (Marine Girls, Young Marble Giants) and David Lynch’s Roadhouse. The group’s sleek, needle-precise sound comes distinctly from Austin, Texas.
The trio use a combination of delicate guitar sounds, played quietly as if from a 12-foot deep well, alongside a bass, creating both tension and melodic release, 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 come together in synchronised dignity to make Love Inks.
The band’s use of silence and approach to instrumentation makes their music direct & sincere harking a real testament to that little old saying, that sometimes less really is more.
