What The Critics Are Saying:
“Just as we are all still reeling from his collaboration with Rick Ross in the powerful Pinned to the Cross release, he releases his new song Closing In. The song features Finn’s smooth vocals over the sound of an 808 that is mellowed by a chorus of flowy synths. Not just a singer on the track, Finn is also known for producing, writing, and playing guitar on his own tracks.” – Popular TV
“Eyes have been turned towards Finn since he first broke out in 2017 with his hit, “Julia.” Since then, the LA singer has continued to build a following with singles like “Catch Fire,” “Low Key,” and the song he’s released today, “IDK.” With a dream-like production that mimics the summer twilight of the single’s cover, “IDK” showcases Finn’s powerful songwriting and powerful delivery. The moment he delivers the line – “But now I’m saying ‘f-ck that’ / I don’t need the stress” – it catches you off-guard, kicking in like an espresso shot for the soul.” – Hollywood Life
“Youth be the future; the future is here, and never is that more evident than when artists like Finn Mathews release such tracks as his latest “Low Key.” Matthews echoes the R&B glam of the previous decade while adding a thick pop layer that rounds out and modernizes his sound. In “Low Key,” Matthews finds a home within a rhythm so seductive and subtle; among ambient synth stabs, he frees up his tender vocals and radiates a warmth to match his confession of love.” –Earmilk
“Into the Open” is a glimmering bedroom pop/R&B number that shows Matthews delivering that hopeful message in a catchy, flowing melody. His velvety vocals and atmospheric production carry the track. – American Songwriter
“A rising pop artist to get familiar with” – Billboard
“The catchy, groove-heavy track revolves around a killer hook and upbeat instrumental lines, as Matthews’ silky vocals take the lead.” – Indie 88
