Company Ink Tease New EP With Latest Single
Company Ink’s debut EP Blah Blah is fast approaching, and the duo have just dropped latest track ‘Young Milk’. Instantly, it’s reminiscent of the best post-punk revival, the sort of thing that could have been on Silent Alarm or Aha Shake Heartbreak, for the most part.
Speaking about the track, the duo explained that: “It’s about how I always loved to bake as a kid even though I sucked at it; and later coming to terms with the fact that I’ll never be a pastry chef”. Perhaps not the most conventional inspiration for a punk track, but it works. Axel Møller Olsen’s punchy vocals work well with Daragh P. Wearen’s melodic guitar, resulting in a song that has mainstream radio potential. Despite this, they don’t lose the ingenuity that characterises Company Ink’s sound.
It’s a safe bet that their EP will live up to the hype, with promising singles being released. All in all, it’s not an exaggeration to say that the Norwegian band deserve to be the face of Scandipunk in 2019.
