Q&A Scene: Dan Mulroney ~ INKLINES

Tell us about your ‘Wherever You Go’ Single? 

Wherever You Go was written by our singer Will, and was recorded in Housefox Studios in 2019 by Lachlan West. It’s basically about saying goodbye to things you don’t need in your life anymore. It was an immediate standout for us and we’re stoked to have it out!

What’s your favourite work at this point in time? (your own or your group’s work)?

My favourite work from Inklines at the moment (aside from Wherever You Go) would have to be our last single ‘Too Much’. I’ve always found the song really engaging and it gets a great crowd response. It is also a blast to play.

Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote.

When touring with the band we normally have to bunk together and apparently in my sleep I try to spoon whoever’s next to me. There’s still no hard evidence to prove this.

What, or who, inspires you?

I draw inspiration from a wide range of musicians and bands, but a few favourites would have to be Pink Floyd, Royal Blood, intervals and John Mayer.

Which song do you wish you wrote?

In terms of songs within the band, I wish I’d written “Crawl” from our second EP – Isolate. But outside of Inklines, I wish I’d written “Particles” by Nothing But Thieves. I really connect with the lyrics and love the instrumentation. 

What’s next for you?

We have some gigs coming up in February, the first one is at the Manly Boatshed on Feb 7th. We’re playing the following week at the Vanguard, Newtown on Feb 13th. We’ll also have some more new content out later this year. 

What’s your scene?

My scene ranges from 70s rock to modern day indie rock. From the likes of Black Sabbath to The Strokes.

Inklines rounded out 2019 with the release of ‘Too Much’, the first offering from their mid-year recording sessions at the local Housefox Studios. Supporting the single with successful shows in both Sydney and Melbourne, the band also gained generous airplay across US/Canada. They aim to continue the momentum with the release of new single ‘Wherever You Go’ on 24th January 2020, and supporting show on February 7th at Manly Boatshed.

Inklines have been making waves in the rock scene since their formation in 2017. Their perseverance and dedication to presenting their live show throughout Australia has seen their popularity grow exponentially, over the past two years. The band has also seen success in US/Canada through the release of their last single ‘Too Much’, which received continuous airplay on SiriusXM/AltNation.

The Sydney 3-piece have completed multiple national tours over the last two years, with shows across Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney and Byron Bay. They have supported those shows with the gradual release of two EP’s, recorded simultaneously at Hercules Street Studios with Lachlan West (The Vines, The Griswolds, Walk The Moon) producing, mixing and mastering both.
