Bitemarks and Bloodstains

By Finch

"Now I'm stealing her body and taking her home". Nate Barcalow has issues. Finch mean business with 'Bitemarks & Bloodstains', lifted from already released album number 2 'Say Hello To Sunshine'. Definitely the most obvious choice from a much less accessible album than debut 'What It Is To Burn', paying most resemblance to the soaring choruses and monstrously guitar heavy hooks that filled it. It's still definitely a step forward though, lyrically it's hugely different. The darkness (not the band) shrouding the song in an intensity never yet seen before, this would be very much at home on a Vampire movie soundtrack so to speak. The track builds slowly at first with a swirling guitar line and near spoken verse before building and building until a guitar stutter and BOOM, the gigantic chorus. The structure does veer here and there with Nate's tones alternating every couple of lines with Nate warbling "This will hurt you more than it hurts me" before culminating in textbook screamo screaming setting up the chorus to hit again for the final time and knock the listener for six. 'Bitemarks & Bloodstains' is Finch transforming (via Hollywood horror movie magic) into what became known as 'Say Hello To Sunshine', the stop gap between old & new. Don't expect an album full of these if you purchase 'Say Hello...'
