Track Of The Day: Fingersnap - 'Blackbirds'

David McAlmont is probably best known as one half of McAlmont And Butler, but has found a new lease of life as part of another duo. Fingersnap also feature the multi-talented Guy Davies, and began playing together in 2011, releasing their debut EP 'The Smokehouse' later the same year. The Evening Standard has hailed them as 'Smoldering, mesmerising and magical', and brilliantly they list their interests as "The Human Condition" and "The World We Live In". 

Their new offering 'Blackbirds' sees tender piano and a spellbinding vocal cast a dramatic elegance on this beautifully emotive piece which (judging by it being listed as 'Track 3' on my media player) looks like it's taken from an upcoming EP. The wonderful animated video for the track was created by Lewis Campbell, and the song itself is available as a free download for all who sign up to the duo's mailing list (link below). You can listen to more of their dazzling sounds by going HERE and reading a review of 'The Smokehouse' EP from a few years ago, where you can also listen to those songs in full.
