Fingersnap is the creative coupling of artist David McAlmont and musical tour de force Guy Davies. Fingersnap’s first release comes in the form of theSmokehouse EP that was written whilst on a writing retreat in Ireland earlier this year and recorded in London over the summer.
I Wanna Rise is the lead track from the EP that also features the masterful Some Kind of Masterpiece, the startlingly powerful song Mister and the controversial track The Bishop of New Hampshire.
Speaking of the formation of Fingersnap David McAlmont said:
“Earlier this year Guy and I went to Ireland to write and play some gigs. The writing that emerged was tougher, starker and more conscious than anything I’d done before and it felt like a new statement, a new band. It felt like the new material would perfectly book-end the last 20 years of the ‘McAlmont Thing’ so we decided that it should be called something new and after much deliberation, we finally settled on Fingersnap!”
Talking about Fingersnap’s musical direction Guy Davies said:
“We took an objective look at what we where playing live since we got back together in summer 2010 and realised we wanted to inject tempo, attitude and a general ‘up-ness’ to the proceedings. This in turn revealed a more soulful attitude in David’s vocal execution and also enabled us to wig-out as a band”
