Following on from the release of “Sertraline”, Inklings announce the release of their next EP “Is This Who You Are?” - due out on August 28th, 2020. Compromising of 4 brand new tracks, the EP takes a darker twist on previous Inklings pop-rock releases.

Talking about “Is This Who You Are?”, Inklings commented: “Inklings has always been a cathartic outlet. The first EP was about putting myself back together after the divorce that was FVK... and this one is about wrestling with the fallout from that. It’s got a positive edge to it though. Even if the songs are super emo”.

The first single release from the EP, volatile new track “Sertraline”, expresses Inklings battles in life. Talking about the release he said: “I wrote this song about my "love affair" with "Sertraline", which is an anti-anxiety drug. In 2017 I burned myself out and the result was GAD (Generalised Anxiety Disorder). It basically meant that my body started producing too many stress hormones and everything went haywire, after coming to terms with the fact that I wasn't imminently dying doctors prescribed me "Sertraline". It made me better and now a few years on this song was almost a goodbye to it”.
Inklings is Kier Kemp. Producing delicately crafted melodies that lean on influences ranging from The Killers to Wham! His personal style of indie rock has been described by Clash as a “Powerful 80s fuelled pop vision”. After a string of self-released singles, Inklings signed with Marshall Records to release the “Piece by Piece” EP, spearheaded by singles “Ambush” and “Let Me Know You’re Alright”, with support from Rock Sound Magazine, Alt Press and at streaming services Spotify, Amazon and Deezer.
