Inklings is the new musical venture of Kier Kemp following his departure from the popular alt-rock band Fearless Vampire Killers.
The new single ‘Ambush’ bravely confronts about someone in an abusive relationship that he knew and features honest lyrics with lines like “I’ve had enough. I’m getting out.

This is some exciting indie rock that you need to hear.
