The fin. “Night Time”
I’ll be honest, I originally only checked out The fin. because of a remix done by Petite Noir. However, the original track surprised me and was far better than Petite Noir’s choppy reinvention. From Japan, The fin. is an indie rock quartet that straddles that area of Euro-shoegaze and dream pop. The lead track off their upcoming EP of the same name, “Night Time,” is a song that proudly stands by its title. Written at night during band member’s Yuto Uchino long, lonely walk from the train station, the song is a chilly reminder of the quaintness of silence. It’s the kind of track that doesn’t entice you on first listen, but it gradually warms you up by the second and third. If you like this, remember to check out their full EP when it drops December 4.
