The six-track EP features collaborations with the likes of dear friends and monumental talents, Tom Iansek (Big Scary) and Airling, as well as bandmates, Jessica Bonnitcha and Justin Olsson. Paying homage to friends and family who continue to inspire Will’s work and to whom the EP is dedicated, Viet Rose draws from a rich sonic palette that has contributed to LANKS’ unique sound and consequent success.
