TRIGGERFINGER

Triggerfinger

Slowly, rotation by rotation, the stylus cuts Ruben's beautifully emotional voice into the varnish of the acetate. Probably every radio listener is familiar with the title he sings. “I Follow Rivers” - the song that deservedly made the trio from Antwerp world famous. Already in their regular version Triggerfinger managed to purify and free the song originally written by Lykke Li in 2008 from all its unnecessary ornaments. But in their version recorded in Vienna they achieved the almost unbelievable: Everything, absolutely everything that could stand between the song and the listener is dropped. What remains is a Casio Kids piano, Doc’s Stonebridge guitar, 2 coffee mugs from the Supersense Bar as percussion and Ruben's unique gentle voice. Clear, powerful, full of passion, enchanting and menacing at the same. And then at the end of the song the bow in honour of a fellow artist who was also a master of playing with the nuances and overtones.
