Band of the Day

The fin

Energetic, groovable Japanese dance-pop with chillwave influences
The night air must have brought something to me. All the lights are flickering; my eyes are occupied.
lyrics from Night Time

Formed in 2012 in Kobe, The fin. consists of Yuto Uchino on vocals and synthesizer, Ryosuke Odagaki on guitar, Takayasu Taguchi on bass and Kaoru Nakazawa on drums. The band sounds like a cross between M83 and Phoenix, citing chillwave acts Toro y Moi and Washed Out as influences.

The band self-released 2,000 copies of its first EP, “Glowing Red on the Shore” last year. Sales went well enough to convince the Hip Land Music label to give it a nationwide re-release in March. And the band performed at Fuji Rock Festival 2014.

The band released their first full length album, called "Days With Uncertainty," on December 3rd, 2014 in Japan.
