Fin Greenall, better known as Fink, knows a few things about music. His musical career started in the club culture of the 1990s, when he was signed to Ninja Tune. In the 2000s he got into blues and folk songwriting and Fink became a band. He has lived in Berlin since 2014.

We caught up with the musician, originally from Cornwall, to find out about his musical shifts, his love of the blues, and the journey that has led to his current output. Greenall says: “I don’t like music which is just product…intensity is the key to art. So anything that’s intense, I get.”

Fink’s latest release is the album Resurgam.
