Rising British singer-songwriter Inkfields will release his, the second track to be lifted from upcoming debut album Beneath The Waves, on Monday 29th January. The dark new indie-rock track is accompanied by an aquatic stop motion video and offers up twisting guitar riffs and minor chord melodies.
“Beneath The Waves is, in part, inspired by my love for the ocean and touches on my tendency towards conservationism” explains James-Griffiths. “The songs wander through my journey over the past 7 years, some having been written before Inkfields even existed. From conservation to political issues, to personal experiences; the songs cover a number of themes. The most important among them is the need to protect our oceans and respect, rather than plunder them.”
Since 2015, Inkfields has been busy developing his songwriting into an expansive and adventurous indie rock sound influenced by Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys and Coldplay. After building an early fanbase with a series of acoustic gigs and street busking performances across the UK and Germany, his first EP Paperless Book sold over 500 copies and his follow up EPs You Forgot The Roots and Danger Moose picked up press acclaim and radio airplay across Europe and the USA. Now his debut full-length record will cement his place as one of the best new artists in the UK.
