A brand new year of music for Sydney’s Inklines has kicked off strong already with the release of ‘Blossom’ back in February. And now, the trio returns, backing it up with another strong dose of indie rock in ‘All Gone’.
As an indicator of the band’s new EP, coming out later this year, ‘All Gone’ is Inklines at their finest. The first song written as part of new sessions laid down with producer Lachlan West, ‘All Gone’ is rich in its guitar and melodic arrangements. The band has always thrived within the alt-rock space and here, we can hear those influences fusing easily with more contemporary notes.
“‘All Gone’ fell together pretty quickly in the studio as we had been gigging for a few months beforehand, and we were all ready to get back into the writing process. It definitely helped that this track is on the mellow side of things, as it really allowed us to let the song flow and take its own course.”
Since their formation back in 2017, Inklines have become seasoned performers on stages around the country performing alongside the likes of British India, elevating as headliners in the years that would follow. With two EPs to their name already, Inklines’ vision squarely remains on pushing their sound forward and exploring more musical influences as they step into new personal and creative chapters. Hailing from Sydney’s Northern Beaches, the band is part of a wave of Australian musicians who can’t be beaten right now.
For the video, Inklines worked with previous collaborator Simon O’Hagan on bringing this new set of visuals to life. Filming took place in Brookvale and Frenchs Forest in NSW by the band themselves, with O’Hagan applying his editing skills to the piece.
“As always, we seem to struggle coming up with ideas for music videos and even if we do land on an idea, the final product ends up being completely different anyway. We initially started filming parts at Will’s house in broad daylight, but once we lost the sun and started playing with coloured lights it just completely mutated. We liked the dark vibe it was taking on, so to finish the day off we went into the yard and burned an old guitar that had been sitting around for ages with a broken neck, just for some extra visual effect.”
PRAISE FOR INKLINES
“A very sick brand of rock that gets you by the arm and just wills you to have a good time.”
Triple J, Declan Byrne
“Their first release of the new year is an ode to their fully fleshed out, experienced sound. Simmering with the brightness of alt-rock legends like Silverchair and Bends-era Radiohead, they feel good without the cheese.”
“Rich with melodies that bring Something For Kate to mind, there’s a playful energy to ‘Blossom’ that also emanates a richness in instrumentation with singer Will Tremain’s vocals oozing an honest yet raw, emotive tone.”
“Classic power-packed rock sound in here and the vocalist can really go when he picks his moment.”
Triple J Unearthed, Dave Ruby Howe
“Sophisticated and subversive in equal measure, their brazen guitar rock unspools in surprising directions as decorum gives way to abandon.”
