Hypnotic indie rock beats. Swoon-inducing, soaring vocals. This is Winks.

“Weed Makes Sex Weird” doesn’t sound like a weed-inspired song or a sexy song. Instead, it’s a dramatic yet almost stoic sounding meditation– heavy on the vocals and featuring simple instrumentation and guitar strings that ring sharply. This, to me, is desert music. All the sounds ring out and would sound intoxicating reverberating down vast stretches of hot land. Is it desert-like in Baltimore, where Winks hails from? I don’t think so…

Winks is Chase from INEVERYROOM and Adam from Weekends. This song is off a tape just released by Friends Records, a label also putting out Winks’ second album this fall.

Get the Winks tape.
