INK – RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘CONTROL’ – out in UK June 9th

INK (all upper case) is the brainchild of Colin MacIntyre, the award-winning singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, author and producer, who has released 6 albums to date internationally, most notably under the moniker Mull Historical Society, achieving two UK Top-20 chart albums and four Top-40 singles, and tours with The Strokes, REM and Elbow. INK is MacIntyre’s new collaboration with other singers, musicians and visual artists, as well as Grammy-winning producer, Dom Morley (Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black“). MacIntyre’s INK arrived as if fully formed and first wowed the blogs last year, teasing with a combination of style, intrigue and exciting music and visuals. The infectious debut single ‘Ink Goes On’ was released to wide acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic via Washington’s ATG Records. Second single ‘Try What You Don’t Know’, an urban tale inspired by Romeo & Juliet, was another melodic gem of top-line hooks underpinned with lashings of punchy beats. Now new single ‘Control’ represents another watershed INK moment, about which The Guardian say: “The lyric-hook is memorable – “Have you ever seen me lose control?” Slick technoid R&B pop, with a finger-clicking bassline – cool and brilliant.” It will be released on Future Gods Recordings on 9th June. INK have already received support from BBC Radio 1, 6Music, BBC London, Amazing Radio, and WFUV, Neon Gold and KCRW among others in the U.S., having broken into the Hype Machine’s Top- 20. MacIntyre’s debut novel, The Letters of Ivor Punch, is to be publishing in Spring 2015 by Weidenfeld & Nicolson of the Orion Publishing Group.
“You will struggle to find an artist as attractive and appetizing as INK in 2014.” The Recommender.
