Single review: Fiskur – At the End

Fiskur is a collaborative project between Ross Clark (Three Blind Wolves) and Andy Monaghan (Frightened Rabbit). Following their spacious and gently soulful debut album, Cold Hands, Burn Slow in 2020, any further news of a Fiskur project should be met gratefully. Unbefitting to the usual songbook of heartbreak, their new single evokes contemplation about an acceptance that can be found ‘At the End’ of a relationship.

Clark’s lyrics and modulation capture the essence of complete vulnerability as the track builds in delicate layers which gently nudge in and disappear without fanfare, with its payoff being a moment of sheer tranquillity. Andy provides the track with its elegant piano and these warm, shy synths.

Lyrics such as ‘Loneliest people stand hand in hand’ have an overwhelmingly relatable feel to them, and routinely carry the weight to sucker-punch the listener right in the gut. Fair play to the former Three Blind Wolves singer for his apparent ease and dearth of self-consciousness when it comes to his songwriting.
