fiN – Life Is Wasted On The Living / Lucky You

fiNI’ve known fiN for over a year now and I tell you, it’s a great feeling seeing a band that’s completely DIY doing well and making their dreams come true. I’m talking about their recent support slot for the mighty Muse. Yes, you read right. MUSE.

And fiN are not afraid to take on a challenge like this. Maybe that’s why they got such a great reaction from all the hardcore Muse fans. They simply know how to please any crowd – small or big, with their catchy music and lively personalities.

But all this doesn’t come without a hard work, dedicated fans and ability to create something original with each new release. The guys have been releasing their singles on 7″ vinyls and the fourth one –  Life is Wasted On The Living / Lucky You came out today together with a release of a new video for #LIWOTL.

They released a video for Lucky You last week, which is an enjoyable mixture of home made recordings from their childhood. The opening line – “Nothing Comes for Free” could not be more true and fiN know it. Their lyrics always make a complete sense and each time they are accompanied with the catchiest melodies and stunning guitars. There is no way, you don’t find yourself singing along to fiN and play them on repeat. They have a true gift of creating music that’s so easy to fall in love with . You just need to take some time to listen and you will never look back.

Take Life is Wasted On The Living. Aren’t those lines familiar to you? Don’t they make you think about life and what really matters? “Life is wasted on the living; life is wasted on the fools that walk away…” It’s a statement that’s important to the band and their fans. The song is filled with a glorious melody that only fiN are capable of mastering. Definitely one of their best tracks.

fiN give us a proof that you can achieve success being a DIY band, as long as you keep going, believe in yourselves and your fans and never give up. Like this they’ve gained a total respect among their fans and a complete freedom over something they love the most.

fiN are here to stay and do things their own way.

fiN Single Launch Review – Bush Hall

Yes, I am a huge fan of fiN and I am bloody proud of it.

We all knew that their single launch for Twenty Three/Eve at the Bush Hall (Wednesday 18th April) was going to be unmissable as the guys had some great surprises in store. They were really good with not spilling the beans on what was coming, but with announcing their support acts Whales in Cubicles and The Jessie Rose Trip; this show was already set to be their biggest yet.

Releasing a new saucy video for their track Eve (watch below)  just a couple of days before the show got us all even more excited!

The beautiful Bush Hall was packed with people closest to the band and their dedicated fans. Some travelled from various places and some even flew over from abroad. It’s all worth for their fantastic music, their extremely hard work they put into it and their friendly and humble approach and appreciation to their fans.

I loved their last launch party at the Borderline but I must say that this show at Bush Hall was the one with a real WOW factor.

The first support act The Jessie Rose Trip from Manchester opened the show with some fresh soul-rock tunes and incredible vocal from the beautiful lead singer Jessie Rose. They surely got the audience chanting and clapping in no time. Check out their Facebook Page and watch this space!

The next support act were one of my other favourite up-coming bands Whales in Cubicles. Knowing they were going to perform at the fiN’s single launch party was another reason to be there.

They simply took over the stage with their rock’n’roll power and showed the audience some proper, loud and exciting sound. They did a great set of songs including their top tracks We Never Win and Across America and they definitely warmed up the audience for fiN! If you haven’t heard them yet, go and also check their music out on Facebook.

Oh boy, fiN were not kidding when they said they had something big in store for us.

When they appeared on stage surrounded by cool laser lights, the energy in the room went up by 100 degrees. And you could see that the guys were ready to give us a show we were not going to forget.

Singer Luke was showing off some great dance moves and took over the whole stage together with Jonny’s and Kerry’s guitar rocking while Simon was killing the drums. The atmosphere was electrifying. Especially with tracks like Twenty Three, Rapture and Changes Everything.

All of their videos were showing in the background and as with their promise of some nudity, they screened an ‘uncensored’ version of Eve, which probably made all the boys in the room really happy. 😉

They even did the famous cover of Once In a Lifetime by ‘Talking Heads’ and presented a great rare video for Everybody Dies Alone.

All of their tracks are so damn great and catchy. Their music has a special energy and vibe that you just can’t help but love.

After this show, I have no doubt that fiN is going to be headlining huge venues in no time. And the fiN fans will be there.

In fact, go and check out the amazing fiN faN forum and join!

Trust me, it’s great to be a fiN fan!

New Music Video! fiN – Twenty Three

And here we have a new mind blowing and energy packed video from the one and only => fiN.

The guys surely know how to make stunning guitar tracks and excellent videos. Their sound is always spot on and each time they bring something different and exciting to their dedicated fans. fiN simply has it.

Their single launch party for Twenty Three/Eve is happening on 18th of April in London at the Bush Hall, which I am once again attending.

It’s going to be one hell of a rock and roll night as their support act is another rocktastic band –  Whales in Cubicles!

Unmissable!

fiN Single Launch Party Review

Me and my friend made a trip to London to see the amazing fiN at their second single launch party for Everybody Dies Alone and Rapture at the Borderline on Wednesday night, the 1st of February.

It was a very special night for the band as all their close friends, family and fans from different places came to support them on this important occasion.

We got to the venue just before 7pm and tried to get in as it was freezing cold outside, but luckily we did not have to wait too long and soon we were sitting at a table having a shot of Jagermeister just to warm ourselves up 😉

As the venue started to fill up slowly, the guys from fiN were already spread  around greeting and chatting to their friends and families.

For start, there were some great support acts to enjoy. A couple of members from a pop/rock band called Van Susans did an acoustic performance. We were pleasantly surprised by their sound and a beautiful vocal from the lead singer Olly Andrews.  We picked up their CD straight away and it’s fantastic! You can check out their music on their Facebook page!

The other support act was Raba, an indie/rock band from Surrey, that warmed up the crowd even more with a few really good rock songs and yet another impressive vocal from the lead singer Scott. Listen to them on their My Space page! They’re great!

By this point the venue was packed with people who came for the one and only, fiN.

The guys came on stage shortly after 9.30pm and started with The Artisan, a track from their first single. I remember they have opened the show with this gorgeous crafty little piece when I saw them in Brighton last October on the Halloween night. That’s when my love for fiN started. 🙂

They played the cool guitar track Rapture, feel good Changes Everything and powerful Everybody Dies Alone from their new single. Plus a set of awesome other songs that I cannot wait for them to release, especially one they finished with, called Life Is Wasted On The Living – God I just love that title!

And of course they were joined on stage by the lovely and multi talented Emma Stevens, a great friend of theirs that’s been touring and playing with them over the months, and is now working on her own album. She records, produces and writes her own songs! I’m sure we will hear a lot about Emma in the future. She is also very kind and friendly and you should look at her Facebook profile and find out more!

Having a lot of fun on stage; Luke, Jonny, Kerry and Simon were putting all their energy and passion into their performance, which was such a pleasure to watch! Four really nice, happy guys that are grateful to their fans and thankful for opportunities including touring with artists like Feeder, everyone was genuinely happy for them because they truly deserve the recognition and support they are getting.

After the performance, again they met and chatted to their friends and fans and were very kind to take pictures with me and sign our singles. Jonny even remembered my name when I said I did a little post about them the other day called fiN – One to Watch. How nice! 🙂

We were so happy to be part of their special evening and we enjoyed it so much.

Now we look forward to seeing fiN again one day! Totally worth it. Meanwhile I’ll just keep listening to their singles!

Once again here is the link to their Facebook Page! What’s not to like? 😉

Here, have a listen to the great track Rapture…
