FINNEAS is on a roll this week. Just days after he and his sister, Billie Eilish, knocked Lil Nas X off his #1 perch with their co-written song, “Bad Guy,” FINNEAS returns in his own right with a new song, “Shelter.” With that, he also announced the release date for his debut EP, Blood Harmony due out October 4. FINNEAS has only ever released a handful of singles, and has managed to build his fame on those alone. This new single is the third shared from this upcoming project, and is equally as vulnerable, heartbreak-tinged, and easygoing as the last. Listen below.
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.”
FINNEAS will also be heading out to play a handful of shows this fall in a few major cities around the release of ‘Blood Harmony’. Look for a list of dates below, and find tickets here.
