“The title Bookies Pens & Loose Ends worked for this project because I felt like I had a number of loose ends going on in my life. Coupled with that, bookies pens are kind of ubiquitous in my gaff. To me, they represent an escape from everyday drudgery, where you can dream of hitting it big. But, there's the cold reality to them, as well.”
Co-founder of eclectic, Dublin-based, record label Burner Records; Fynch released his new EP, Bookies Pens & Loose Ends last Friday. The five-track art piece bleeds with pure emotion and the narrative of a young man in Dublin’s suburbs dealing with issues of angst, self-doubt and self-confidence. Fynch pours his heart into each song, cured with distinct themes we’ve seen before in his work such as Saipan, a track featured on the EP that released earlier this year:
“I put a lot of myself into writing and conceptualising it, even down to the cover art, so I want to see the best for it".
Four of the EP's tracks were produced by FYNCH's frequent collaborator, Seabass. The EP's final song was produced by FYNCH's label mate, Marcus Woods; A fun track called “Milk Teeth” with a space-type beat introduction carrying mellow vibes and unapologetic lyrics throughout . Production on the project takes inspiration from a variety of places, not least trap drums and a certain lo-fi aesthetic which FYNCH's previous works are known for.
