Fintan McKahey’s new GOD GAMES EP is an eclectic, down tempo, alt-pop production, inspired by the likes of Ben Howard and Chet Faker. The sound has developed from his more folk-based, percussive style debut EP, Two Lifetimes Late, which was well received and launched at DeBarras Folk Club in 2016. His new EP, GOD GAMES, is inspired by both the rugged landscape of his own homeland, and influenced by his travels through Kenya, Thailand and Peru, where Fintan spent time with indigenous cultures exploring alternative belief systems. The title track ‘God Games’ is a love song, which invites the listener to transcend the mundane, venture forth and imagine other realms.
Ahead of its Spotify release, ‘God Games’ title track has received radio play on Corks Redfm (‘Local Legend’ – Dave Mac’s Drive ) Corks96fm, KCLR (Song of the Week on Roddie Cleere’s Irish Music Show), WLR, 8Radio, Eirewave (Best Irish Indie Playlist), DublinRadio and more.
‘God Games’ EP Tour kicked off with a launch party at Kino, Cork on 28th April followed by an Irish & U.K tour .
” Fintan‘s vocals represent a warm and instantly familiar glow with radiance being a motif that is also replicated in the official video. Much like the track, the video is a lesson in “less is more“… The result is engaging and often hypnotic.” – Cougar Microbes music blog
