OPUS KINK announce debut EP & share lead single ‘I Love You, Baby’
Opus Kink, eclectic, grimy punk rockers, have announced their debut EP today, arriving this summer via Nice Swan Records, along with a brand new single ‘I Love You Baby’ released today. The band explained: “‘I Love You, Baby’ is a sweet, tender love song charting one careless heart’s adventure through purgatory. Signed with a sticky kiss from Opus Kink to you”.
I Love You Baby blends together an accumulation of genres, creating a unique post-punk funk sound, that when heard can only be described as Opus Kink.
Heavily supported by the likes of the NME, So Young, Clash and Gigwise, Opus Kink have already kicked 2022 off with a soaring start, selling out London’s iconic 100 Club, and booking themselves some festival slots for this summer.
