Me, Charles • White Pearl • 2023

Body image is a recurring theme across the record. The EP’s title refers to the way we generally accept the word ‘fine’ as a replacement for good, when often that is far from the case. It’s also a reference to the overly high expectations Stooke puts on himself, in part due to the body dysmorphia and resultant disordered eating he has struggled with for many years. The EP’s artwork is a truly defiant image,  where Stooke’s naked form is displayed unflinchingly on the cover. “I’m really lucky and grateful to be able to reappropriate these usually painful areas of my life in such a constructive way”, he says of the experience.
