Finn Askew has today released ‘Cherry Bomb‘, the latest single from the remarkable new UK talent. Listen HERE.
Hailing from a sleepy market town in Somerset, the 19-year-old singer-songwriter could scarcely be further removed from any sort of music scene, and yet he’s raising the bar for the rest of the industry with his soulful yet alternative inspired sound.
Wildly eclectic in his outlook, Finn actively rejects the concept of genre constraints and takes a magpie-like approach to song-writing, creating exciting new hybrids in the process. R&B, jazz, rap, emo and indie-rock all coalesce with stunning results for the VEVO DSCVR One To Watch artist.
Of the track Finn says “When I first heard the piano riff I fell in love and knew that it was special! Shoutout Earl, Max and Rob for making the tune what it is! Wanted to come back from the first project with something different before really showing off my sound which is yet to come.”
‘Cherry Bomb‘ is a fresh and exciting taste of things to come for this genre-defying artist. Stay tuned for more from Finn Askew in 2021.
