Finn. is German singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and fashion designer, Patrick Zimmer who splits his time between Hamburg and London, where he recently found a new home with cinematic music label Erased Tapes ? a conceptualist with the voice of Leonard Cohen on helium. Born in 1977, yet combining influences that span decades, Finn. had to wander through a playground of electronica and low-fi recordings to get here. His third album 'The Best Low-Priced Heartbreakers You Can Own' shows a surprisingly mature and cohesive collection of haunting and mesmerizing songs as a result from his consequential musical progression. Finn. lived, recorded and produced the album over the course of seven months in the catacombs of an old 14th century church underneath the streets of St. Pauli. With this release, Patrick Zimmer prescribed himself a concept album. Finn has supported Jos? Gonz?lez in Berlin as well as Stephan Eicher at two sold out shows at the Olympia in Paris. He will be playing at Iceland Airwaves in Reykjav?k, followed by a 15-date UK tour in late October to promote the album release, supporting label comrade ?lafur Arnalds at unique venues including Oxford's Holywell Music Room and the beautiful Union Chapel in London. Deluxe packaged digipak CD, comes with a Free Download Voucher for the 11-track Erased Tapes Collection I label compilation.An album free of any artificial elements, whose place has been taken by a firework of pompous cymbals, fanfares, strings, trombones and kettledrums. Based on the idea of a theatrical concept, the underlying classical drama is divided into five acts, which define the constellation of the songs and the structure of the record. However its content resembles more closely the original form of a Greek tragedy. ?I will leave this harbour?? he sings, after he symbolically let his dead hero ascend to Mount Olympus, and adds: ??but I will carry on.?
