In my post Three Gigs That Made My 2011, I wrote a small review about a indie/rock band FiN and I mentioned how great their music is, so let’s have a look at it!
Well, first of all, the very important thing is that these guys sound great live. They supported Mona in Brighton when I saw them and I enjoyed them a lot. Definitely not one of those support bands you want off the stage as soon as possible.
Busy touring around the UK at the moment and gaining more and more fans with each gig, FiN are set for a great future. They supported great bands like The Kooks, Incubus and Mona in the past and they are about to play three shows with the amazing FEEDER! The tickets are all sold out!
These guys really deserve all the love they’re getting.
If you have a look at their website with a very smart title LifeIsWastedOnTheLiving and read the biography, you’ll find out interesting things about the band members, their cool way of releasing their debut album, what’s inspired them to make music or what are their music influences.
Here is a cool sneak peak quote from the lead singer Luke Joyce: “There are no rules. Throw away the rulebook. You want to aim as high as you can, and that’s what we’re gonna do. If you aim at ‘impossible’ you’re always going to end up better than if you just aim for somewhere logical.” Nicely said!
You can follow FiN on Twitter – fiNuk or Facebook – fiNUK and get all the updates!
Here are some great tunes…
Convinced yet? 😉
Let’s talk some pop-noir.
Mirrors. Four guys from Brighton who released their debut album ‘Lights and Offerings’ last year in February ( I listed the album in My Top Albums of 2011) should be fully back on track this year.
Nearly a year since the album release, I believe the boys have been busy making some new stuff, as they recently tweeted (@worldofmirrors) about a couple of new tracks ‘Dust’ and ‘Shooting Stars’ which you can listen to on their My Space page.
Another dose of a brilliant, dark and catchy synthpop, I think Mirrors have something even bigger in store for us this year.
If you’ve heard their previous work, you know how easy is to fall in love with their original sound.
And if not…
Lights and Offerings is an album worth checking out. Especially songs like ‘Into the Heart’, ‘Hide and Seek’ and ‘Ways to an End’.
Here is a couple of great videos
And here is a video of their great new track ‘Dust’ and you can also have a look at their Youtube Channel for more!
Their website The World of Mirrors offers you to download some cool mixtapes compiled by the band members themselves and see what influences these guys to make such a fantastic and unique music.
Whatever they are up to at the moment, I think their fans have a lot to look forward to.
