But this is not the first time that a former boy band member has gone into do something that is a little less pop. Where Busted’s Charlie Simpson went for an aggressive Hard Rock sound with Fightstar and James Bourne, also from Busted, went for the Pop Punk genre with Sons Of Dork, INK have gone down the more Post-Punk road. Poynter has gotten quite the resume in the last 10 years with being the bassist and vocalist for Mcfly And co-writing children’s books with his former band member Tom Fletcher, INK is just the latest addition. Vocalist and guitarist Todd Dorigo and drummer Corey Alexander join the line up and complete the band. Having hit the scene rather quietly the EP itself is anything but quiet. With its dark sounding vocals and catchy riffs it’s very much a stand alone sound that cannot be compared to previous work from the band members. Despite just being 4 tracks the band has been able to showcase their sound and show a lot of promise going forward. You can hear their influences of bands such as The Rolling Stones and the beginning of the title track has a very familiar sound of Iggy Pop. Don’t get me wrong though their music is completely their own and when listening closely you can hear the well written subjects of these tracks such as love and anxiety. Each track is well composed and you can find yourself easily listening to them on repeat. INK are clearly here to be taken seriously and anybody unsure because of the background of Poynter should push any preconception out of their mind as this is its own band. The boys are touring this year as well as releasing this EP and I’ve no doubt this will be a show to keep your eyes open for. Tracklist: 1. Heaven 2. Fever 3. Symphony Woman 4.
