Talking about the new song, FINNEAS reveals, “I wrote ‘Angel’ backstage on tour with my sister back in November. I made myself a cup of coffee and sat down at a piano and wrote the whole thing in an hour and played it for the first time that night. Love has always been the most important thing to me and the thing by which my life is guided. Falling in love with someone and feeling so in awe of them that you wonder if they’re even real is what I wanted to say with this one.”
“Angel” serves as the follow up to FINNEAS’ last release, “I Lost A Friend,” which to date has been streamed more than 4 million times since its release. Filled with poignant lyrics, “I Lost A Friend” perfectly showcases FINNEAS’ knack for effortless, heartfelt storytelling, paired his simplistic and rousing signature production.
