New Zealander Liam Finn might have gotten the music gene from his father, Neil Finn of Crowded House/Split Enz fame, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t grown to become a unique artist in his own right. Formerly the frontman of Betchadupa, Liam can channel the singer-songwriter somberness of the late Elliot Smith, while also evoking the lively, raw emotion of indie-pop groups like The Shins. The range of his sound makes him stand out against the mellow troubadour crowd.
His sophomore album, FOMO, is out now via Yep Roc.
