Composed of 13 previously unreleased live recordings (2011-2012) from European cities as varied as Paris, Amsterdam, Prague, Vienna, and London, it includes fan favorites such as "Sort of Revolution", "This Is The Thing", "Fear Is Like Fire", "Yesterday Was Hard On All Of Us", and "Berlin Sunrise". The album is presented in an exquisite 84-page hardbound bookpack, featuring a treasure-trove of live photography by acclaimed Dutch photographers Tommy N Lance. The album will also be available on gatefold vinyl, and perfectly captures Fink’s ferociously inventive and impassioned live performances.
Following the success of last year’s Hard Believer album—which saw the trio known as Fink melding Fin Greenall’s ruggedly lush vocals with a slow-burning and steady-thumping array of string plucking (Guy Whittaker) and cymbal smashing (Tim Thornton)—they ring in 2015 with Horizontalism, due for release via R’COUP’D on 18 May 2015.
Portico's new album track 101 receives some breath-taking visuals, featuring a chance meeting between a diver and a shark, shot in defined monochrome; watch on Clash. The album, Living Fields, is out next Monday 30 March.
