"Resurgam", was so viel wie "I rise again" bedeutet, ist das heiß-erwartete sechste Studioalbum von FINK: Singer/Songwriter und Band Leader Fin Greenall, Tim Thornton (drums, guitar) und Guy Whittaker (bass). Produziert von Flood (U2, PJ Harvey, Warpaint etc)! Das Album ist der nächste große Wurf in FINKs Release-Katalog vom Sample-lastigen Debüt Fresh Produce (2000), über Hard Believer (2014), dem Elektronik-Meisterwerk Horizontalism (2015) bis zu Fink’s Sunday Night Blues Club Vol.1, dem Solo-Ausflug aus dem Frühjahr 2017.
Fink have never been afraid to experiment; on Resurgam, they arguably sound more fearless than ever. "I was fresh off the Blues tour, voice thrashed, nails broken, the sweat from the last encore still on the guitar as I unpacked on the first day," recalls Greenall. "The first week was supposed to be set up and settling in – by the end of day 4 we had already recorded the track 'Resurgam', the first track we nailed, on the first take, whilst essentially warming up..."
Resurgam derives its title from a Latin inscription in a 900-year-old church in Greenall’s native Cornwall. Its vital, insistent spirit pulses through the entire album, which was recorded with ground-breaking producer Flood (PJ Harvey, U2, Foals, Warpaint, The Killers) at his Assault & Battery studios in North London. Its ten new tracks were created over two months, a relatively luxurious stretch of time compared to previous Fink albums, resulting in a collection that is both assertive and richly immersive.
"Flood, present and engaged from the first demo, guided me through the process of doing things differently, from writing, to singing, to even thinking about the music I make," says Greenall. "His combination of 'deadlines are a good thing' versus 'fuck the deadline', and his mantra of 'making records to be bought, not sold' gave us all, in our own individual corner of the studio, the fire and the focus to pull together our firmest, strongest, and most coherent record to date."
