Hailing from the vibrant Japanese port city of Kobe, The fin. elected to temporarily relocate to

England’s equally bustling capital in autumn 2016 to explore the impact that life in London might

bring to bear on their new material. Having signed to Lost In The Manor Records the previous

year, the band’s growing renown on these shores has led to a surge of media interest and prime

headline slots such as this year’s Great Escape Festival. A reputed and singular attraction in

their homeland due to their stylish Europhile blend of synth-pop, chillwave and dream-pop,

complete with English lyrics addressing universal themes of everyday uncertainties, The fin.

have, since forming in 2012, performed before thousands of rapturous fans at major Japanese

festivals including Fuji Rock, Rising Sun and Viva La Rock. Not content with such acclaim in

one country alone, Yuto Uchino (vocals and synths), Ryosuke Odagaki (guitar), Takayasu

Taguchi (bass) and Kaoru Nakazawa (drums) set their sights worldwide and in 2015 embarked

on a major tour of the US, which included a performance at SXSW, before signing to Lost In

The Manor and releasing their debut UK EP, ‘Night Time’. This spring’s deliciously refined

follow-up, ‘Through The Deep’ only served to demonstrate the depth, versatility and scope of

this terrific band, whose songs’ sonorous components, as evidenced in this new collection, are a

remixer’s delight.
