The Nihlist - YEP ROC
FILTER Grade: 81%
By Daniel Kohn on April 9, 2014
Unlike other children of famous rockers, the 30-year-old New Zealander Liam Finn has managed to make a career of constant exploration and reinvention of his sound. Hunkered down in Brooklyn, Finn combines lo-fi electronica and heavy, bass-y grooves with grungy indie rock, which when done incorrectly would be the musical equivalent of oil and water. But, ultimately, the singer’s delicately harmonious pipes shine above all, thus proving that following in your father’s footsteps isn’t as hard as advertised.
