Finn Askew
ESNS: 2022
Hailing from a sleepy town in Somerset, 19-year-old singer-songwriter Finn Askew is raising the bar with his soulful yet streetwise sound. R&B, jazz, rap, emo and indie-rock all coalesce on his forthcoming debut EP. On lead single, ‘Peach’, Finn and regular collaborator Earl Saga pair euphoric punk-pop energy and chiming guitars with vocals redolent of Post Malone. Contrast that with ‘Roses’, which blends smooth piano jazz with lo-fi hip hop beats, or the sparse guitar-soul of ‘Buttercup’, evoking the spirit of ‘Ivy’-era Frank Ocean.
