INK. – FEVER [Review]

London-based alt rock trio, INK. release their sultry second single ‘FEVER’, taken from their debut EP, HEAVEN.

INK. formed over a common love of art, literature and songwriting. They take influence from artists such as Nick Cave, Interpol, David Bowie and Nirvana. Lyrically they are inspired by the writings of the Beat Generation and cover topics of anxiety, love and the coming of age. While their name is inspired by the work of artist Ralph Steadman.

Their latest release ‘FEVER’ is driven by pop hooks and bass heavy verses. Lyrically the song is well accomplished. Dorigo and Poynter symbolize depression as a “fever” and explore the thoughts and feelings that come with such a state of suffering. Yet, it is Dorigo’s brooding vocals that are the most enticing element of the track. His Faris Badwan-esque sound perfectly flows over Poynter’s melodic bass lines and Alexander’s hard-hitting drum beats, to create a carefully produced gothic rock song.

Following their impressive EP release INK. are one to watch closely in 2018. They begin their first UK tour in May.
