Fink Meets The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra
'Warm Shadow' is taken from Fink's fourth studio LP, 'Perfect
Darkness', an album that draws a bright thread through an
exploration of difficult times, and which continues to garner
immense acclaim from the media and public alike. 'Warm Shadow' is a
love song at heart: a meditation on wanting a moment not to end,
but knowing absolutely that it will.
The original is complemented perfectly by a stunning cover version
courtesy of legendary saxophonist Colin Stetson and his bandmate in
Bon Iver, lead writer/vocalist Justin Vernon. In their hands, the
song's forward motion becomes chillingly ominous - hauntingly so -
and relentlessly gripping by way of an almost metallic melody and
an anxious, thudding rhythm.
The remixes come from Sideshow and Marcus Worgull - with Sideshow
taking us into their trademark organic re-work with more than a
hint of Dub, and Marcus, following in the footsteps of his huge
'Move On Me' bootleg from last year, takes the original and
linearises it into the Berlin night...."
A version of 'Warm Shadow' will feature on Episode 13 of the hit
AMC drama 'Walking Dead'.
