Liam Finn Bio Top
'The Nihilist' might sound like a dark title for a record, but Liam Finn begs to differ. "There's an idea of nihilism as being quite a negative or macabre concept, but it really isn’t at all," the New Zealand native says excitedly. "I like the idea that maybe everything we think we know about this reality or have come to believe is potentially untrue."
The truth is, Liam Finn's music has always existed in its own distinct reality of other-worldly arrangements and blissfully catchy hooks. His debut album, 'I'll Be Lightning,' earned Artist to Watch accolades from The Wall Street Journal, Rolling Stone, Spin, Stereogum and more, along with performances on Letterman and Ferguson. Entertainment Weekly hailed his "effervescent choruses [and] swooning harmonies," while Billboard called the record a "charmer."
He toured the world, sharing stages with the likes of Eddie Vedder, The Black Keys, and Wilco along the way, and in 2011, he released his follow-up, 'FOMO,' to further critical acclaim, with SPIN saying the album "blends sophisticated melodies and wistful vocals with masterful authority."
