Inkfields release eclectic debut album Beneath The Waves
Collection of new songs ranges from anthemic indie-rock to baroque folktronica
Scottish singer-songwriter Inkfields has released his debut album Beneath The Waves on all download/streaming platforms today. The bold set of adventurous new songs takes in indie-disco anthems, ethereal electronica, baroque pop and guitar-hero riffs and is unified by Samuel James-Griffith’s songwriting skill and urgent vocals.
“Beneath The Waves is, in part, inspired by my love for the ocean and touches on my tendency towards conservationism” explains James-Griffiths. “The songs wander through my journey over the past 7 years, some having been written before Inkfields even existed. From conservation, to political issues, to personal experiences; the songs cover a number of themes. The most important among them is the need to protect our oceans and respect, rather than plunder them.”
Since 2015, Inkfields has been busy developing his songwriting into an expansive and adventurous indie rock sound influenced by Radiohead, Muse and Coldplay. After building an early fanbase with a series of acoustic gigs and street busking performances across the UK and Germany, his first EP Paperless Book sold over 500 copies and his follow up EPs You Forgot The Roots and Danger Moose picked up media attention and radio airplay across Europe and the USA. November single Snare Yourself preceded the debut LP and was met with press acclaim from XS Noize, GigSlutz, PureM Magazine and Vents Magazine. Now his debut full length record will cement his place as one of the best new artists in the UK.
