Lanks ~ Beach Houses


Who is LANKS?  An arcane electronic solo project of Melbourne musician Will Cuming.

My first impression of “Beach Houses” :  A euphonious fusion of electronic textures, R&B flavored beats and one charismatic and all-consuming flute!

My take :  What a tune!  “Beach Houses” is a laid-back track tailor-made for my head bob.  From the very start, I roll through a sonic landscape of electronic beats and rhythms, synthesizer grooves and flows and a hypnotizing swirl of flute sounds that is truly memorable.  When I listen to the words, I like how they conjure up images of what might have been.  Like mental expressions of growing up with dreams and expectations that don’t actually come true.  Yet in the end, with all of life’s choices in a world filled with infinite possibilities, there is an underlying feeling that everything will be more than ok.  “LANKS” may have drawn a curious ear of mine with the previously released “Brave Man” track not too long ago, but with “Beach Houses” I am now fully on board.

Born in sunny San Diego and raised in central Illinois. I graduated from the University of Illinois @Urbana-Champaign and spent the better part of 10 years in sunny Phoenix Arizona after graduation. I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
