Musical polymath Lynks has today shared a new single, ‘Use It Or Lose It’ - a punchy electro-pop cut that explores the complexities of queer hedonism with humour and compassion. It comes accompanied by the news that they’ve signed to Heavenly Recordings, as well as a powerhouse video encompassing distorted club aesthetics and (of course) multiple costume changes.

Entirely self-produced by Lynks, they say of the track: “I turned 25 last year which is supposedly the “scientifically most attractive year of your life”. I found this out and was like “Damn, this is as good as I’m gonna get?” I suddenly had this prang of, like, if I’m not fucking 24/7 I’m somehow wasting my youth. Letting it slip away. And then you end up making really bad choices. Plus being gay on top of that… the gay world is obsessed with youth. Which isn’t surprising - there just isn’t a blueprint of what growing old as a gay man looks like. So yeah; dry patches, sex parties and twink death. Everything you could want from a big summer banger if you ask me!”

Lynks is spending the next few months playing a string of live dates across the UK and Europe - check out the shows below.
