The fin. is the music project of Japanese producer Yuto Uchino and Kaoru Nakazawa. Yuto Uchino writes, performs, records, mixes and produces all of the project’s music. Kaoru Nakazawa used to play drums in the earlier works and currently plays bass as a touring act. He also manages a streaming live space in Tokyo for Japanese streaming distribution service FRIENDSHIP. Hailing from the vibrant Japanese port city of Kobe, The fin. have quickly drawn attention inside and outside the borders of their homeland with their stylish Europhile blend of synthpop, chillwave and dream pop, complemented by English lyrics addressing universal themes of everyday uncertainties. Their move to London has seen them develop themselves artistically through collaboration with a wealth of European artists and producers like Bradley Spence, All We Are, Circa Waves, Last Shadow Puppets, Petite Noir and many more. Their last EP "Wash Away", released in September 2019, was followed by an Asia tour gathering more than 15,000 fans. Their new single “Over The Hill”, from February 2020, has been selected on 9 of Spotify’s New Music Friday playlists across the world, such as New Music Friday UK. Never on pause, they are about to drop new music, with a full album scheduled for next year.
