Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new video by Mighty. "Fingertip" recalls the steely clang of Gang of Four and paints a little bit of grunge grit over the hard surface. The resulting melody lashes out and drifts away, in turns. Singer/guitarist Angelo Fioretti spoke to Punknews about the track:
“Fingertip” was inspired by doubt in personal relationships. The lyrical content to me is very obvious. I didn't have the mental capacity at the time to muster up pretentious words for my feelings.
The verse on “Fingertip” sounds kinda like a Wavves song. And I don't think the pre-chorus on “Fingertip” would have those angular riffs without me listening to Say Anything records in high school.
