Lindsay is the new musical project of Melbourne singer songwriter Will Cuming, who achieved considerable commercial and critical success from 2014 to 2019 as LANKS. His debut EP as Lindsay, his middle name and one he shares with his grandfather, was released in April 2020, in the midst of a global pandemic and the same month his grandma passed away.
The songs that make up the ASMR Love Letters EP are a trigger to think about family and the emotion of this strange and challenging time but, Cuming explains, “this EP isn’t meant to be something to wallow in. ASMR Love Letters is a warm whisper of calm in your ear when you’re feeling anxious.”
Ahead of the EP, Lindsay released a video for the beautiful and delicate acoustic song ‘Rituals’, which features guest vocals by Brisbane-based singer Asha Jefferies. The clip is a one-shot outtake from a 2017 LANKS video, where Will Cuming is running freely through the pine forest in Macedon, Victoria, a footage that took a new meaning during these last months of isolation and insecurity.
