Cover My Tracks at The Lowry

You probably know who Charlie Fink is…or at least you’ll have heard of his band Noah And The Whale. The group, active from 2006 to 2015, won critical recognition for its indie rock records and become firm favourites of the Glastonbury/BBC 6 Music crowd.

Instead of sitting around getting fat and forgotten, Fink has kept busy since the band split. In 2015 he wrote the music for the Old Vic production Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax, a show The Guardian described as ‘the best family show since Matilda’. It was nominated for an Olivier Award and returns for another run in London this October.

Now Fink is back with another theatre production – this time an entirely original creation. Cover My Tracks tells the tale of a young female singer songwriter who goes missing, with the lyrics she’s left behind the only clue as to her whereabouts. Part-theatre part-gig, this is a modern day folktale for music fans – think Narvik but set in the present day.

Given the pedigree of Fink and the rest of the creative team – which includes both The Lorax’s playwright David Greig and its director Max Webster – Cover My Tracks should be a strong show, with plenty of Fink’s trademark charm.
