It’s no surprise that Finneas’ EP is musical perfection. We’ve slowly become accustomed to his songwriting abilities through sister and mega star Billie Eilish. Finneas plays a lead role in the co-writing and production aspects of Billie’s music while also playing guitar right next to her as she headlines arenas and stages around the world.
In a recent press release through Live Nation, Finneas said the inspiration behind Blood Harmony and what it means to him. “At the beginning of 2019, I decided I wanted to make a collection of songs that encapsulated exactly what my life had felt like for the last 18 months…Almost every song was written in a hotel room, or a tour bus, or on an airplane, or in a dressing room while I was on tour with my sister” he goes on to say, “Writing and recording this EP was like filling a time capsule with different fragments and memories I’ve made and now, they’re all yours.”
The California native starts off the EP with the haunting “I Lost A Friend” a song that tugs the heartstrings of anyone who has ever…lost a friend. Aching vocals and dainty production will make this song immortal in the ears of anyone who is already a Finneas fan. “I Don’t Miss You at All” and “Let’s Fall in Love for the Night” mirror eachother in sound and overall tone. Both are bouncy and cute in a unique way. “Partners In Crime” has the spirit of a Coldplay B-side. Finneas’ subtle key changes lead the song alongside a repetitive guitar melody. He sweetly sings, “Did we look like lovers or partners in crime? Did you look like mine? Or did we look like fools Tryna get away with it all?” This one is easy to set on repeat as you slip away into peaceful bliss.
Finneas’ knack for sad lullabies, compelling poetry, and intricate melodies is a talent we need more of in today’s music scene. True artistry is an understatement. What a prolific introduction to Finneas’ musical talent.
