The one-and-only Lynks has followed up the iconic Smash Hits Vol. 1 with another brilliant offering, this time with 'Pedestrian At Best'. 2020 might be well and truly in the bin but Lynks continues to brighten-up our year one rave anthem at a time. 

The new track is a cover of Courtney Barnett’s ‘Pedestrian At Best'. According to Lynks, the track, as well as Barnett, has had a big impact from early on. "Courtney’s original version of ‘Pedestrian At Best’ was one of the first tracks that inspired me to start writing music," said Lynks. 

Also adding, "There was something in the specificity and the humour of the lyrics that made me realise, ‘holy shit, I could write songs about ANYTHING’. And so at the start of lockdown when I got my first synth and I was learning how to use it, I thought why not try and do my own spin on it as a kinda technical exercise. But then it ended up sounding amazing. I performed it on a live stream, a bunch of people asked me if I would release it and now here we are! I’m so happy to be paying homage to the ICON that is Courtney Barnett and to be turning her existential punk anthem into an unapologetic gay-club-ready banger."
