Good Day Noir Family,
I already reviewed Somefinn in the past but they are out now with a new cool single and I want to share my opinion about it.
As soon as I hit the play button, the way of interpreting the lyrics of their new single “Contact” reminded me of Grant-Lee Phillips the lead singer of Grant Lee Buffalo.
I felt the passion and emotion of the singer in his vocal cords, I believed in the words and I got excited listening to this beautiful melody.
This band can play, you can hear that they spent a lot of time in the rehearsal room to achieve such an enviable sound understanding.
The chord progression is never predictable and banal and the song flows well from the first to the last second, giving you indelible emotions.
I was glued to the speakers from the first to the last second and I enjoyed this cool song abandoning myself completely to the sonic universe of this talented band,
Contact is Somefinn’s Single Out Now!
Dreamy and Real!
“It’s been an exciting time.” says Paul Finn, frontman and songwriter for SOMEFINN. Since releasing their debut album, ‘…Tsk, Tsk…’, but especially since the release of their two singles, ‘Nobody’s Fool’, and ‘Starlet’s Dream’, they have seen rapidly growing interest in their unique take on alternative art-rock. “We have four gigs lined up this month. It’s hard to believe – we’re really grateful for it.”
‘Contact’ marks the band’s third single from their debut album, a darkly alluring song about seeking connection. A highly percussive piece, Finn describes it as ‘tribal’. “It’s a passion cry, a crying out for touch.”
The composition has a bodily quality to it. The bass grooves persuasively, in tandem with Finn’s outstanding signature vocal. It is a voice which is piercing and devastating, and a delivery reminiscent of the charming relentlessness of David Bowie. “All I ask is an act of contact,” he repeats in the chorus, different each time, pulling on the listener’s heart more with every turn.
