Following up on his string of successful releases, FINNEAS is back again today with an enchanting new single, “Landmine.” The new release shows a more upbeat pop side to FINNEAS while still maintaining the raw and authentic vibe that fans have come to know and love.
FINNEAS gave Variance Magazine the first listen of “Landmine” yesterday and explained the deeply personal nature of the new single: “This song is a little like a diary entry for me. It scared me the first time I played it for anyone because I was saying things in it I’d only thought privately to myself until that point. I think the universality of the song is probably just because everyone knows what it feels like to realize loving someone is even more painful than leaving them.“
With five past strong releases under his belt – “New Girl,” “In Love Without You,” “Break My Heart Again,” “Heaven,” and “Life Moves On” – Finneas (born Finneas O’Connell) has consistently proved his talent and versatility as an artist, songwriter and producer with each new release.
In addition to his quickly growing solo career, FINNEAS is also the songwriting and production genius behind his sister Billie Eilish’s debut EP, don’t smile at me. He co-wrote and produced hit songs of Billie’s, including “ocean eyes,” “bellyache,” “watch,” and her new hit single with Khalid, “lovely.” FINNEAS is also a staple in Billie’s live band, recently completing a run on her sold-out world tour and now performing for crowds of thousands at major summer music festivals such as Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival and Governors Ball Music Festival.
Following his massive SXSW solo debut, FINNEAS has also been stepping out with his own live solo act. He has recently played packed out solo shows in New York and Los Angeles, and his performance of “New Girl” has become a staple in Billie Eilish’s sets.
With support coming in from key tastemakers such as Zane Lowe – who named “Break My Heart Again” as one of his #Breaking tracks on Beats 1 – Ladygunn, Ones To Watch, and DuJour Magazine, Finneas is quickly becoming an artist to keep an eye on.
