This morning, we’re holding on to this third announced confinement but we’re still optimistic with the possible resumption of concerts in May or June. While waiting for things to change and for us to get back to a “normal” life, the MailTape crew will make sure you’re full of it and discover new talent. It is through this current context that we let the Finkle group speak.
Finkle, it’s all about friendship. Three Toulousains, who decide to form a band for the pleasure of music. An electro atmosphere and festive sounds which make us want to move. A group to watch very closely.
Joji - Your Man
Finkle: “I like to listen to this song because it makes me happy. Every Sunday morning I put this song and even if I’m sad or a little melancholic it transmits me some good vibe and I feel better. Joji is this kind of artist who puts some soul into a track and I really like it.“
Benjamin Diamond - Fit Your Heart
Finkle: “Take a coffee, dance to the track and see what’s happening.“
Half Moon Run - 21 Gun Salute
Finkle: “There are some unexplainable vibes about this tune that makes it purely comforting and warming. It has been several years since I discovered it and I still feel like i’m listening to it for the first time each time I’m playing it. This track is a complete journey from the start to the very end. I’m just in love with the drums, all the pads and synths but most of all the vocals that just lift the whole song to an amazing level.“
Finkle – Body feat Hawa Sarita
Anaïs G: “While waiting for the sunny days, and the return to the “normal” life, we console ourselves with this song that smells good of summer, evenings with friends drinking and dancing until the end of the night. A fresh, sunny sound with the voice of Hawa Sarita carrying us.“
LÜNE – Bleu
Anaïs G: “A little crush for the newest member of Nowadays Records, LÜNE. A lively, colourful sound that makes us want to dance all day long. This track “Bleu” is taken from “Chambre aux Etoiles”, an EP that will be released on June 25th on the Nowadays label. We can’t wait!“
Lewis OfMan – Diamant
Anaïs G: “Five years ago, I discovered this young electronics prodigy, Lewis OfMan. Indeed, the media were not wrong to refer to it as such. A style, and a musical style that makes that he has already worked with many artists such as Fakear, Vendredi sur Mer, the group Pirouettes or Rejjie Snow. I chose this sound that dates back a few years because it’s “Diamant” that made me love the person but also his sounds. This song goes crescendo like a dance with a slow movement at the beginning but which gradually emancipates itself from things and ends up liberating at the end. An incredible musical flight!“
Nude – Idyll feat Anouré
Anaïs G: “A palpable sweetness and an incredible sensitivity through the voice of Anoure, sublimated by the music of Nude, which makes this sound an indispensable to wake up quietly on Sunday morning watching the sun rise.!“
That’s all for this morning! As always, thank you so much for listening with us. So much love to Finkle for their fantastic Sunday selections and to Noémie Dijon for this episode’s psychedelic illustration.
