Without wishing to sound like every damn magazine when they do a premiere… we are proud to premiere this brilliant new track from Kinky Fingers. Now, normally when mags write that they are proud of the exposure, they are possibly proud of the kudos. But honestly, like a couple of 14 year olds in a dossy bedroom, we take our pride from the look on your face when you hear this brilliant track ‘Prove It’.

Having made their way through the American dream, up and down the dreamy Rocky mountains, waking up in sweats at the Mexican border and belching through the barbecued bible belt, Kinky Fingers feel curiously complete.

Having been formerly revered for their surf sound which wouldn’t feel out of place in a blood-filled Tarantino epic… set at the beach, the band have added a sense of soul to their new work and with ‘Prove It’ they make the case that the new album will be the making of the band.

The song lingers and meanders pleasantly through the darker side of soul music, hinting at a previous life in the waves it lilts and sways at the shore until culminating in a powerful push of vocal and riffs and genuinely delighting us.

This all bodes well for their new album out on February 23rd, Garbage Plate. The title of the album is taken form their time recording in Rochester, NY. A Garbage Plate (we are reliably informed) is a plate of fried potatoes, baked beans, hot dogs, onions, mustard, and a chili-like meat sauce. Intense. As the name suggests, the music rings through so many genres, textures and tastes it feels a perfect fit for the deteriorating American dream, which once tasted so sweet and now feels more like a bellyache.

So, there’s two things you need to do now, listen to this brilliant new track from Kinky Fingers, and then show us a pic of your face enjoying it!
