Token Smokin' Hottie: Charlie Fink

It's a cliche to say that dudes start bands in order to get laid. And yet I can only imagine that it's working wonders for Charlie Fink, lead singer of delightful British band Noah and the Whale.

Sure it doesn't hurt that he's already got a certain something something with the hair, the eyes and a cheeky smile. (Of the denim shirt he is attempting to rock in the above photo I will not speak). It doubly doesn't hurt that both Charlie and the rest of the band seem completely fucking adorable, as evidenced by this delightful interview. ((Yes I am a complete sucker for anyone who professes to love the film Rushmore as much as I do but it's more than that: there is pretty much nothing sexier than a dude who can be spontaneously funny. Seriously, I think I'm in love with the entire band, particularly his super hot brother Doug who has sadly since left the band to save lives or something.)

But, really what it comes down to is that I've been listening to quite a bit of Noah and the Whale lately and I would give just about anything to be able to do what they do. And yet if it was a choice between waking up one day with a big fat bundle of musical talent or getting to spend a filthy weekend with Charlie, several bottles of wine and a big fuck off bed I can't say for sure I would do the right thing. I mean, seriously, getting to touch the hair alone would be totally worth it.

I really don't have any idea of who you are, but god, you're so right. I've been listening NATW's songs all day long for the last month and I can't even think of anything that could beat the opportunity of meeting that piece of awesomeness that is charlie fink. I really really love him and his adorable accent.

Without totally turning you into will beasts of jealousy, I am seeing dear Charlie tomorrow at a gig in Plymouth (UK. But I loved your piece and agree with everything, they are the epitome of awesome!

If I had the cash I would seriously considering flying over and murdering you for your ticket. As it is I'll just sit here stewing in my own jealousy and praying for an Australian tour... K
