Another artist that’s been pulling at my heartstrings lately is Fink. Also known as Fin Greenall, this English artist has built a wide range of credentials for himself in the world of music, starting in 2000 with the release of his debut album Fresh Produce. Since then, he’s released five albums, written for a number of artists (including John Legend), produced for major artists (including the late Amy Winehouse), and gained credits as DJ and a skilled guitarist.
Moving on from the basic bio information, the reason why I like Fink is because of [the magic] in his voice. There’s something about it that soothes my soul. I’m not sure if I should call it smooth or raw (or both), but whatever it is, it’s captivating. Perfect Darkness is the title track from his latest LP, which dropped in the U.S. last month. This indie-rock, 10-track album gives you a smooth sound tied to slightly somber tone (like the album artwork above implies), but don’t think that takes anything away from its quality. Even with the less-than-cheerful overall tone, the album still puts me in a peaceful state of mind. Check out Perfect Darkness below and you’ll see what I mean about those stirring vocals.
Of course, I had to give you all a bonus track. This is a shortened version of the remix to his previous album’s title track and it features music from The Cinematic Orchestra, a British band also signed to his label. Check it out.
