Unday records news - Tin Fingers releases 'Rock Bottom Ballads'

Tin Fingers takes on a darker, melancholic direction on their second full album. Felix Machtelinckx’ weeping vocals, preaching, searching, and trying to understand God, form the leitmotif. With rich melodies, haunting piano sounds, improvisations, first takes, and no overdubs, Tin Fingers is searching for pureness and keeping things human and simple. The band is playing together intuitively, without a computer, without ego, just for the sake of music.

Tin Fingers is Marnix Van Soom (drums), Simen Wouters (bass, backing vocals), Quinten de Cuyper (guitar and keys) and Felix Machtelinckx (lead vocals, guitar and piano).

Rock Bottom Ballads - Album by Tin Fingers | Spotify

The creation of the album was very fluent and spontaneous. Singer Felix wrote the backbones of the songs and the lyrics on acoustic guitar and piano. He wanted to have songs ready in order to be able to record and write arrangements fast. With an eye for details but without overthinking, keeping the ideas fresh. ‘I wanted to stay in love with the music.’ he explains. ‘It needed to go fast, very fast, in just two weeks the entire album was recorded and ready to be mixed.’ 
In the studio, the band especially focused on picking the right mood rather than playing the right notes. 
They were fed up with working on a computer for many hours, overthinking production choices, and adding instruments on top of each other as if they were Lego blocks. This time, they decided to work more traditionally, going for first takes, jams, and essentially working with analog gear. No computers, no screens, no distractions. There are only four humans in a studio trying to make a sound together by keeping things spontaneous and raw. They said goodbye to perfection and worked towards an unfinished product, a snapshot.
Tin Fingers also didn’t want to sound like any other artist on this record. They decided not to listen to music during the sessions, and to never express ideas by referencing other bands. Just before the studio session, however, bass player Simen Wouters broke the rules and shared Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s, I See Darkness. Its dark and searching sound ended up inspiring the band unmistakably. 
Once the recording was finished, the band decided to keep the volatile rhythm going and asked reputable NYC-based mixer and producer D. James Goodwin to finish the job. Goodwin, known for his analogue folk productions with a real American punchy sound but a tender touch, proved the right man for the job. He opened up the songs and kept things poetic, minimal but impressive.
