Check This: Fink – Looking Too Closely

Artist: Fink

Song: Looking Too Closely

Genre: Indie, Trip-hop, Folk

Most artists these days start their careers playing instruments, and then go into DJing as a side gig to make extra money. Not England’s Fink – he translated his career as an electronic music DJ into being a touring singer-songwriter. There are still electronic and trip-hop elements sprinkled through his acoustic music, but has he’s grown in this sphere and collaborated with other artists (including the late Amy Winehouse), his skills as a songwriter have grown.

His moving single “Looking Too Closely” (from 2014’s Hard Believer) is a great example of this. Acoustic strumming and piano interlace under Fink‘s soft-spoken vocals about hurting people. The song builds smoothly until a full band breaks out half-way in, turning the song into a healing anthem. Great music for chill afternoons and hard times.
