Misstep is the first single taken from Rock Bottom Ballads, the second Tin Fingers album due November 17 on Unday Records. The band takes on a darker, melancholic direction on their second full album. Felix’ weeping vocals, preaching, searching, and trying to understand God, is the leitmotif. With rich melodies, haunting piano sounds, improvisations, first takes and no overdubs, Tin Fingers is searching for pureness and keeping things human and simple. The band is playing together intuitively, without a computer, without ego, just for the sake of music.
The album's opening track Misstep is a song about memories and rituals. It reflects upon youth's strong friendships and psychedelic experiences. Misstep is an homage to exactly this, all the mistakes and the misconceived rituals of adolescence. ‘Tonight I'm going for weightlessness, Tomorrow clean up the mess, how much stretch is left on my rubber soul, My damn rubber soul.’ Machtelinckx weeps.
