Fink: Warm Shadow

One thing I like about the current crop of TV dramas is that you are often introduced to music outside of the mainstream. Last week’s episode of “The Walking Dead” provided a selection from Fink’s 2011 LP “Perfect Darkness.” Fink is the performing name of Fin Greenall as well as the name of his band.

The song featured at the end of the show was a haunting little tune called “Warm Shadow.” I liked it when I first heard the tune last week and made an effort this week to discover its name. Greenall, who sings lead and plays acoustic guitar, is joined by Tim Thornton on electric and acoustic guitars and drums, and Guy Whittaker on bass.

Live Version

While it sounds as though the primary guitar is played with incessant hammer-ons, it is not – it is strummed as witnessed in this live version of the tune recorded in the Netherlands.
