After a vibrant run of form already this year, Lynks is now back once again to share a brand new single.
The new track '(What Did You Expect From) Sex With A Stranger' follows on from the previously shared efforts 'NEW BOYFRIEND' and 'USE IT OR LOSE IT', and is described as "a bouncing queer-pop paen-turn-diary entry detailing the rollercoaster of emotions that is heading to a one night stand with someone you’ve met online".
Speaking about the new offering, Lynks said, "Now, Grindr can be a wonderful thing - don’t get me wrong. But I wrote this song during a time when I was using Grindr almost like TikTok or Instagram; as a way to distract myself from reality - to not be alone with my thoughts. And, unsurprisingly, the s*x that came from that wasn’t hugely fulfilling. I was seeking these encounters to try and distract myself from the mundanity of life, but ultimately leaving them feeling no different. I wanted to try and capture that weird oxymoron; s*x without feeling, romance in a coma. What does s*x become when it’s devoid of emotion? Transactional? Routine? Obligatory? Compulsive? It’s a funny idea. And one I hadn’t really heard put to music before. So I thought I’d better do it! And shout out the Docklands Light Railway in the process.”
