Josiah Love it. Classy and refined mix of goodness of the songwriting and musical variety. Favorite track: Jamie's Got A Baby.

Jen Favorite track:
If you really loved me

So many great lines with a healthy dose of cynicism, under the guise of naivety - "I would've worn a dress or something, would've washed behind my ears. If you really loved me.... like you haven't in years". Favorite track: Jamie's Got A Baby.

Simon Palastanga Just hearing the track 'Jamie's got a baby' until the whole album is released next week, but it's great.

Piano and Cello accompany an unmistakably Finks-style song, funny and poignant, emotionally engaging, great arrangement and recording.

I love it.

The Finks are a collection of people and ideas based around the songs of Oliver Mestitz. Middling is their fifth release in as many years.

Following the all-acoustic Lucklaster (2014) and a piano-and-vocals EP, Settling (2015), Middling captures The Finks with a rhythm section, three shared vocalists and guest appearances on guitar, piano and cello.

Middling was written and recorded by Oliver at home using an 8-track cassette mixer. He played almost everything himself, layering instrument upon instrument and mixing each song straight to tape.

To listen to Middling is to step through the front door: the guitars are warm, the piano slightly wonky, the vocals echo off the floorboards and the windows let in sounds of traffic, birds and rain.


released October 7, 2016

Featuring Sarah Farquharson (vocals, cello), Madeleine Duke (vocals), Matthew Dwyer (piano on 3, 5, 8) and Jake Core (guitar on 6). Mastered by Mikey Young. Released through Milk! Records, 2016.

The Finks Melbourne, Australia

The  Finks  play the songs of Oliver Mestitz. They are sincere but flippant, intimate but aloof, subtle but unpolished.

The Finks have released a steady stream of quietly uncompromising music via Milk! Records since 2012 – three EPs, three albums, a couple of singles and the latest tape Affectations, a collection of covers and instrumentals and found sounds. .
