Japanese trio The fin. is one of the acts that you need to listen to before exiting 2017 – these three musketeers take psychedelia to another chillvanic level. In their new single “Outskirts,” the trio seamlessly manipulates synth layers alongside dripping chords and echoing ambience that takes us closer to the cosmos. The lonely bass strikes and drum pulse yield the comfortable loneliness we rely on during daydreaming. Stream below:
“This song was made when I was trying to express some feelings that I didn’t even notice I had in my mind. I tried to figure out what they were by making music. The muddiness of the sound expresses the state I was in.” shared The fin.
Comprised of Yuto Uchino (vocals/synths), Ryosuke Odagaki (guitar), and Kaoru Nakazawa (drums/bass), the Fin. have been making buzz in the psychedelic scene and played in major festivals including Fuji Rock, SXSW and The Great Escape. They debuted their EP Night Time in the UK back in 2015 via Lost In The Manor. “Outskirts,” produced by Brad Spence, marks a new trajectory for the trio who are currently working on their debut album.
