Lost At E Minor Session: LANKS’ brilliant cover of Julia Michael’s ‘Issues’

If you’re the sort of person with your finger on the pulse of Australian music, then you may have heard of the Sydney-based Melbourne-bred singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, LANKS.

LANKS is the moniker of Will Cumings, who has delivered consistently over the last few years, releasing three EPs in consecutive years before taking a break in 2017 to follow up with his first album, twentyseven.

The album was released on the 27th of April and has been described as being about the anxiety and pressure LANKS felt in trying to reach achievements by the time he reached the age of 27.

In his recent Lost at E Minor Session, LANKS performed a cover of Julia Michaels’ hit song, Issues. While not too far outside of his wheelhouse, the choice was still an interesting one and the result is a raw performance that puts a fantastic spin on a pop hit.

LANKS embarks on a 12-show tour of Australia at the beginning of August.
