LOVE INKS is a minimalist pop group making music that harkens back to early 80s UK (Marine Girls, Young Marble Giants) and David Lynch's Roadhouse. The group's sleek, needle-precise sound comes distinctly from Austin, Texas.It is a combination of guitar, played quietly but as if from a 12-foot deep well, and bass, creating both tension and melodic release when necessary, in conjunction with an electronic drum machine. The triangle is only completed by Sherry LeBlanc's voice, which leads the listener through every song -- whether it be mellow or dark. These three elements together make up LOVE INKS. Their use of silence and their approach to instrumentation, while sometimes coming across as confrontational, makes their music direct and sincere. Love Inks is looking forward to an EU tour this fall, following the release of EXI.

4.0 out of 5 starsminimalist electro-pop led by fragile female vocals20 Sep 2014
By Charlie Quaker - Published on Amazon.com
3rd album from Austin, Texas trio—oddly relaxing, minimalist hauntings of electro-pop led by fragile female vocals and driven by sparse, precise electronic beats. It’s a glassy-cold sound, but Sherry LeBlanc’s voice brings a subtly flirtatious accessibility to the songs. Reminiscent of Young Marble Giants, The XX, the Raincoats, Marine Girls.
