Fink - Perfect Darkness - out on Ninja Tune



Fink Perfect Darkness
Fink - Perfect Darkness
(LP/CD/Download) Ninja Tune ZEN170/ZENCD170/ZENDNL170, 2011-06-13

Perfect Darkness is a smouldering, pulsating, and purposeful book of songs. From its emotion-rousing, self-titled opener, to the darkly cinematic Fear Is Like Fire, and the uplifting nostalgia of album closer Berlin Sunrise, the Perfect Darkness LP bristles with tense passion and hypnotic charm. It is in two words, bewitching and addictive. Following three critically-acclaimed albums, this new LP marks the next chapter of an incredible musical journey for the Bristol-born artist. The first and pre-eminent singer-songwriter signed to legendary British label Ninja Tune - after making the transition from world-class club DJ and electronic producer - Fink is also an in-demand collaborator having written for the likes of John Legend, Ximena Sarinana, Amy Winehouse and Professor Green. He has also graced some of the world's most prestigious stages, and with bandmates Guy Whittaker on bass and Tim Thornton on drums, has toured the globe several times over. Up until now Fink has remained in the shadows, working quietly and diligently in the background, but judging by this new record he is set to emerge into the bright lights of long-deserved mass recognition. Perfect Darkness is released June 13th on Ninja Tune.

Press Release :
Mention Fink (real name Fin Greenall) and you surprisingly get one of two reactions: head-scratching non-familiarity; or the impassioned response that prompts artists such as John Legend and Professor Green to wax lyrical about him live on air. It is a remarkable void, one which looks set to finally close upon the release of Fink's latest studio album 'Perfect Darkness' on June 13th.

Recorded and mixed by producer Billy Bush 'Perfect Darkness' is a smouldering, pulsating, and purposeful book of songs. From its emotion-rousing, self-titled opener, to the darkly cinematic 'Fear Is Like Fire, ' and the uplifting nostalgia of album closer 'Berlin Sunrise', the 'Perfect Darkness LP' bristles with tense passion and hypnotic charm. It is in two words, bewitching and addictive.

"Singer-songwriters always get criticised - fairly - for sometimes sounding like a scratched record, " says Greenall. "... moaning about this, moaning about that, girlfriend's left you, blah blah, blah. With Fink we do sing about relationships and love and emotions - but we also sing about other stuff: embracing fear, Berlin dawns, looking forward. Perfect Darkness was written about a friend of mine who's just signed a massive record deal and it's all about to kick off. And I'm saying, 'just roll with it man. It's gonna get dark but you'll survive and you'll come out the other side.' "

Following three critically-acclaimed albums, 'Perfect Darkness' marks the next chapter of an incredible musical journey for the Bristol-born artist. The first and pre-eminent singer-songwriter signed to legendary British label Ninja Tune - after making the transition from world-clas club DJ and electronic producer - Fink is also an in-demand collaborator having written for the likes of John Legend, Ximena Sarinana, Amy Winehouse and Professor Green. He has also graced some of the world's most prestigious stages, and with bandmates Guy Whittaker on bass and Tim Thornton on drums, has toured the globe several times over.

Up until now Fink has remained in the shadows, working quietly and diligently in the background, but judging by this new record he is set to emerge into the bright lights of long-deserved mass recognition. 'Perfect Darkness' will be released June 13th on Ninja Tune.
