I have seen a ton of bands live over the years but FINK is one I would love to experience in person. The UK band has toured off and on since 2006 and are gearing up to release a brand new album, ‘Hardbeliever’, on July 14th. And if their first single “Looking Too Closely” is any early indication, this could be their best collection of songs to date.
The first thing I notice about “Looking Too Closely” is the stunning lead vocals and how they soothingly draw me completely in. I can feel the pure raw energy and the impressively controlled power behind them pushing me along in a way very few vocalists can. I love the way the song slowly builds on top of itself like a musical set of Lego blocks. Breathtaking layer after breathtaking layer. Gradually growing and morphing out of a lonely guitar strum with a flowing overlay of piano, into this incredible burst of rich sound I am completely engrossed in. “Looking Too Closely” is beautifully crafted and just might be my new favorite song I have heard all year. And further solidifies my need to catch a FINK show front and center as soon as I possibly can! Pre-order the new album here!
