The Finks - No one else

The Finks - No one else
The  Finks  play the songs of Oliver Mestitz. They are sincere but flippant, intimate but aloof, subtle but unpolished. The Finks' latest tape, Affectations, is a collection of covers and instrumentals and found sounds. Critics have described The Finks as “crushingly beautiful” and “perhaps the most underrated act in Australian music”.

As Oliver describes Affectations:
"The idea was to record a few covers and some originals using only equipment that could fit in a shoebox. This included a Tascam four-track, two microphones, a few leads and cassettes, and my mum’s Sony Walkman from the eighties (now defunct), which I used to record rehearsals and live shows with. Some of these recordings made it onto Affectations, as did some leftovers of old songs that were already on the tapes.

I began recording these songs as a bridge between my last “real” album and the next, but over time they took on the shape of an album in its own right. Although I treasure the contributions of Finks regulars Matt and Sarah, as well as Lehmann B Smith on clarinet, it’s best to think of and listen to Affectations as one prolonged moment – an exercise in intimacy."

About this track...

"This song is about aloneness; the deep, inevitable sort that binds a person’s experiences into a self. It’s quiet and concentrated, with my vocals accompanied by Matt and Lehmann on piano and clarinet. Full credit to them for taking on my ideas while realising the song’s potential in a way I never could have done myself." Oliver explains.
