INK's bright, melodic "Try What You Don't Know" offers a refreshing departure from the dark, downbeat atmospherics that's in vogue these days.

Brit electro newcomers INK must not be suffering from the post-daylight savings doldrums, not if their bright, melodic single “Try What You Don’t Know” is any indication. Buoyed by a driving, enthusiastic pace and the coed vocals of Colin Mac and Miriam Massie, “Try What You Don’t Know”, which premieres on PopMatters, offers a refreshing departure from the dark, downbeat atmospherics shading the genre INK works in. Backed by a cover of Twin Shadow’s “5 Seconds” as its b-side, “Try What You Don’t Know” comes out on 11 November in the UK and 12 November in the U.S. via INK Music.

Austin-based Americana/rock outfit Stükenberg is set to release its third captivating album, Novella, on November 12th.

With a sound characterized by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist frontman David Stükenberg as Appalachian-Rock, Novella finds inspiration in early Fleetwood Mac’s eerie backwoods melodies and the distorted, almost-Pentecostal energy of a church service led by Rage Against the Machine. Novella‘s wildly lush narratives and darkly driven tunes immediately grab your attention and simply refuse to let go. This exciting new project was made possible by fans through a successful Kickstarter campaign.
