This evening, the musician’s Hell on Earth event in London (see details here) promises more of the same as well as the release of single On Trend. As a performer who is ridiculous to a surrealist degree – she up-cycles so well, a dishcloth garment becomes a political statement. In between relentless gigging, Elliot Brett, the brain behind it, chats gender identities, Greta Thunberg, subculture and balaclavas.
Lynks Afrikka has gigged with Goat Girl, Sorry, Oh My God It’s the Church!, Shygirl and Scalping as well as selling out headline shows. Their new single On Trend comes out this Halloween – also, aptly Brexit-day, until yet another recently announced delay by the UK government. Poised with bouncing synth modulation, shouted lyrics and accompanied by iconic backing dancer-singers, Lynks is here to voice the insanities of the modern world. Honest, mundane, yet all whilst oozing sex: How To Make a Béchamel Sauce in 10 Steps (With Pictures) is a standout track investigating a savoury creamy liquid. On Trend directs an industrial-pop-laser onto Trump, the crazed use of mindfulness apps and our extinction crisis perpetuated by capitalism. Lynks Afrikka produces a unique fluid euphoria in varying liquid forms both material and social, bending the constraints of modern society.
