Lynks shares ‘Pedestrian At Best’ cover

He’s turning Courtney Barnett’s “existential punk anthem into an unapologetic gay-club-ready banger.”

Our fave Lynks is back, following up July EP ‘Smash Hits Vol. 1’ with a very special cover of Courtney Barnett’s ‘Pedestrian At Best’.

“Courtney’s original version of ‘Pedestrian At Best’ was one of the first tracks that inspired me to start writing music,” Lynks says. “There was something in the specificity and the humour of the lyrics that made me realise, ‘holy shit, I could write songs about ANYTHING’. And so at the start of lockdown when I got my first synth and I was learning how to use it, I thought why not try and do my own spin on it as a kinda technical exercise. But then it ended up sounding amazing. I performed it on a live stream, a bunch of people asked me if I would release it and now here we are! I’m so happy to be paying homage to the ICON that is Courtney Barnett and to be turning her existential punk anthem into an unapologetic gay-club-ready banger.”

Accompanied by a classic amazing Lynks video, the track marks the first taste of his forthcoming new EP!
