At the end of 2018 LANKS released a short 3-track EP, Inoue, dedicated to his close friend fighting cancer, and featuring the singles Stronger Than and Spiritual Man. Shortly after he announced an indefinite hiatus from the project and a new direction with collaborative project, Ok Moon, alongside Dustin Tebbutt, Hayden Calnin and Xavier Dunn. They released their self-titled album in August, 2019.
Whilst on hiatus, LANKS' Inoue EP grew on it’s own, amassing over 10 million streams in a period of zero activity, encouraging and inspiring new energy and an expanded body of work and return to the LANKS project.
2020 saw a move to Brooklyn, as well as a new solo folk EP, ASMR Love Letters under the name lindsay, and a new LANKS double album, SPIRITS PT.1 + 2, featuring many collaborators such as RY X, HWLS, Alice Ivy, Nalepa.
SPIRITS PT. 1 + 2 will be released in late 2020/early 2021.
