Tink is newly independent, and she’s celebrated her new, more ideal situation with the release of a new EP. Pain & Pleasure feels very much like a project very much released on Tink’s terms, made up of 6 strong featureless tracks that play to her strengths. “M.I.A.,” one of the most memorable of the bunch is a fluid mix of the Chicago vocalist’s singing and rapping, but also pitches her voice up slightly, proving to be an interesting stylistic choice.
While the engineering is flashy, Tink’s appeal has always been her strong songwriting and personality, which shines through in a big way here, as she effortlessly moves from chorus to verse but never wasting a second when it comes to creating catchy patterns that stick immediately. It’s a promising new page in a career that was unsettlingly stuck in a standstill. Listen to the full project here, and expect more from the reinvigorated singer in the near future.
