Lynks has released a new song, ‘(What Did You Expect From) Sex With A Stranger’. It follows the recently shared singles ‘USE IT OR LOSE IT’ and ‘NEW BOYFRIEND’. Listen to it below.
“Now, Grindr can be a wonderful thing – don’t get me wrong,” Lynks said in a statement about the track. “But I wrote this song during a time when I was using Grindr almost like TikTok or Instagram; as a way to distract myself from reality – to not be alone with my thoughts. And, unsurprisingly, the sex that came from that wasn’t hugely fulfilling. I was seeking these encounters to try and distract myself from the mundanity of life, but ultimately leaving them feeling no different. I wanted to try and capture that weird oxymoron; sex without feeling, romance in a coma. What does sex become when it’s devoid of emotion? Transactional? Routine? Obligatory? Compulsive? It’s a funny idea. And one I hadn’t really heard put to music before. So I thought I’d better do it! And shout out the Docklands Light Railway in the process.”
