Today, 22-year-old songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and artist FINNEAS, releases his latest song “Shelter.” With this release comes the exciting news of his highly awaited debut EP, Blood Harmony, out on October 4.
In speaking about the new song, FINNEAS reveals, “I wrote this song a couple years ago and just let it percolate for a while, seeing how it would age,” he explains. “When I looked through my music to release this year, I came across the demo and was pleasantly surprised to find I still liked it.” He continues. “Usually, I get bored of my stuff almost immediately. I wanted this song to have an urgency to it when I recorded it, the same way that the lyrics do—the kind of feverish feeling that accompanies loving someone.”
Explaining the title of his EP, FINNEAS shares, “I would love for this title to remain ambiguous to listeners and for everyone to be able to imbue it with their own meaning and justification.”
As the sole collaborator, producer and elder brother to Billie Eilish, he elaborates. “The most common use of the term blood harmony is an English expression for what it sounds like when siblings sing together, that biologic chemistry—I think that speaks for itself.”
This fall, in addition to playing Austin City Limits Music Festival (TICKETS HERE), FINNEAS will embark on his first headlining tour. Kicking off October 15 in San Francisco, the five date run will see him play Los Angeles’ iconic Masonic Lodge at the famed Hollywood Forever Cemetery before heading off to Chicago and Brooklyn and concluding in Boston on October 24.
