Love Inks' debut album 'E.S.P.' (due May 10, 2011) was conceived and recorded with strict, direct motives. No frills, tears through extravagant side roads, indulgent solos, certainly no jamming, and no extra instrumentation. The combined sound is minimalist dream-pop; imbued with raw emotion, sexuality and splashes of electronic color. Focus is placed primarily on the voice, which is direct and honest and real. Self-recorded in their own homes, Austin, Texas, and mixed by a friend; the idea was to get the purest signals from all instruments and feed them through an 8 track reel-to-reel, immediately warming the sounds and weaving it all together. This process was drawn out on a piece of paper in schematics before recording with the concept being: the less digitized the better. In March of 2010, Love Inks started the process with fifteen or more songs, and by June they were down to a solid ten. The songs featured on 'E.S.P' were written to showcase the essence of emotion behind each instrument. It started as an exercise and became the only way to do it, forever. With the guitar and bass, Love Inks found there is a way to drop it perfectly into the song, in between everything, so that the vocal can exist in its own world, floating independently above the song. For the lyrics, Sherry channels the intensity and love between Yoko Ono and John Lennon. Sherry is also a firm believer in positivity. Her lyrics are never abusive or cynical.
