Inks Lake are a new post-punk band from Austin, TX with former members from Nice Strong Arm, Swans, and Beth Israel.
Our music blurs energetic, cathartic sounds and angular aesthetics with melodic vocals.
We're Active Minds. You may not have heard of us, but we've been around for quite a while playing DIY political punk and hardcore. We have a wide range of musical interests, and try to reflect this in our songs - so expect some variety. Here's the first track from our new EP.
On the surface, "Break" is about a relationship, but in a broader sense, it’s about not being afraid of change and the possible consequences that can come from it. We had a lot of fun working with Alex Newport, and I think that comes through in the recording and the rest of the album.
