About this playlistDo you remember what it’s like to get ready for a fun dinner out with close friends? Can you picture yourself in a dimly lit New York lounge? This playlist is meant for the moments that you want to slip into something a little more comfortable, as you ready yourself for silky melodies and an ass-shaking percussive pocket. Well, grab your silk garment and shake up your martini; this is what FINKEL has found for you. Here you’ll find scintillating lyricism from Sinead Harnett, soaring vocals from James Blake, and attitude from Little Simz and Kamakaze worthy of that silky button-down hanging in your closet. You may find that your buttons loosen as the playlist rolls on with help from artists like Big Wild, Leon Bridges, and Glass Animals. We hope to provide you with a good mix of some songs you already know, and gift you with some new flavors that will inspire you to investigate further. The songs on this playlist aim to flow well and explore a multitude of genre-fluid landscapes from across the globe. Silk shirts are meant to be cozy, light, confident, and sexy. We hope this playlist mirrors such adjectives. However, we know that you can’t wear your silk shirt forever. It has to get washed, just like your gym shorts do. Therefore, this playlist will change! So make sure to save your favorite tunes and support these artists while they are in rotation. We’re always looking for new music to highlight. If you have something that fits, well, like a silk shirt, let us know!
about the artist — FINKEL
Yo - hope you are well. Thanks for being curious about us. We’re a married couple that likes to wear matching clothes and do out-of-the-box shit to create our music. Welcome to our fever dream <3
Jane and Brian Spencer of FINKEL seem to arrive from the near future, or perhaps somewhere out there, appearing with a slight shimmer of a dimension adjacent to our own. With an atmosphere treading the periphery of pop, the duo’s tangible vocal presence overlays hypnotic electro pulsations in a combination that teases out details of last night’s otherworldly dreams and tempts the waking state to return to its astral analog.
To start off 2021, FINKEL hunkered down on an isolated snow-covered island in the middle of Lake Huron and wrote their next body of work. The process was filmed by a small crew and will be released as a documentary with the album in Q3 of 2021. Follow along with the process via Instagram @islandersfilm
