Lynks & Jessica Winter at The Green Door Store, Brighton, 17th March 2022
From their Brighton debut at the tiny Rossi Bar two years ago, the Lynks message has clearly spread. After stealing the show at Mutations Festival in November, tickets for the Green Door gig started flying out and those who were lucky enough to grab one were not disappointed.
First though, proof if it were needed that you should always catch the support slot. Stunning vocals from Jessica Winter and the stage presence of a film noir starlet captivated the room. The perfect way to kick things off.
To the strains of The Wedding March and clad in a psychedelic bodysuit, Lynks walked down the aisle through the crowd and jumped on stage, catapulting straight into live favourites This is the Hit and Everyone’s Hot (And I’m Not). New track Hey Joe (Relax) was just as well received, with sing backs from the heaving crowd continuing throughout the set.
Ably backed by the Lynks Shower Gel trio, a Lynks show is an immersive experience that never fails to lift the spirits. Finishing with the ever popular Str8 Acting, the crowd response was as loud as I’ve heard at the venue and justifiably so. The tour continues tonight at London hotspot Heaven, then moves through Bristol, Birmingham, Nottingham, Leeds, Birkenhead, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Southampton and Margate – catch it if you can.
