The fin.

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.  Their sound often is described a cross between M83 and Phoenix, citing chill wave acts Toro Y Moi and Washed Out as influences.The band released a self-release EP, Glowing Red on the Shore in 2013 and as a promising new band, they were invited to perform at major Japanese festivals like FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL.   The debut album, Days With Uncertainty was recorded and mixed by the singer, Yoto, and mastered by Joe Lambert (Animal Collective, Washed Out, Beach Fossils, Warpaint, Deerhunter).  Positively facing everyday uncertainty, their stylish sophisticated sound is rather confident and natural.Days With Uncertainty was released in December 2014 and critically acclaimed by Japanese press.  

Considered as one of the most anticipated newcomers in Japan, The fin. is joining Japan Nite, popular annual showcase kicking off March 20th at SXSW in Austin, TX, and making stops in Chicago, IL, Columbus, OH, New York, NY, Athens, GA (Slingshot Festival), Denver, CO, Los Angels, and San Francisco, CA.
