Finn Askew shares new single ‘Paranoia’
UK-based singer-songwriter, Finn Askew, today shares his new single ‘Paranoia‘. LISTEN HERE.
As the follow-up to his more soulful single ‘Cherry Bomb‘, ‘Paranoia‘ is a genre-defying upbeat anthem, with its alt-rock sounds and rousing lyrics. Giving fans a new peak into his world, Finn shares a unique visual to release alongside the song – surrounded by a series of surveillance cameras and monitors, Finn performs ‘Paranoia‘ solo, collaged with livestream footage broadcast globally.
Of the track, Finn says “If I was in the form of a song that song would be ‘Paranoia’. It represents me as an artist the best. When you see the word paranoia you’d probably imagine the song to be pretty dark, that’s what I love about this song cause it’s far from that.”
At 20, Finn Askew is more focused than ever; ambitious, self-reliant, and prepared for the thrilling future he is building for himself. Praised by The Line Of Best Fit for his “candied indie-pop” that would “fit on your 2014 Tumblr dashboard”, “genre defying” by Equate Magazine, “a young prodigy” by Rolling Stone Australia, “an artist to be reckoned with” by Tone Deaf, and amongst others, a “breakout musician to know in 2021” by GQ Australia; Finn’s meteoric rise from zero studio experience some two years ago, to his signing to Polydor Records in 2020 who released his debut Peach EP, is a testament to his constant hustle and enthusiasm for experimentation. Trying on genres as often as he does new sartorial styles, guided by his own intuition, Askew continues to deliver with ‘Paranoia‘ taking his artistry to new heights.
