Kinks are defined by the English Dictionary as "a sharp twist or curve in something that is otherwise straight". Then we have that famous expression " ironing out the kinks". Like kinks are undesirable. In my songs I like to embrace kinks. Kink up the structure, kink up the arrangement, kink up the chords - anything that takes me and the listener on an unexpected, exciting journey. The downside of this is my music needs a few listens. Which maybe isn't so good in this "everything now" world. The upside is they stand the test of time.
Have a great weekend everyone and embrace your kinks
p.s. this is the cover for the new album- kinks, rumples and all
