Hailing from Kobe, Japan, The fin. have slowly been growing their fanbase in the UK, where they released their EP Night Time back in 2015. Now they're on the verge of returning with a new album in 2018, and the first glimpse of what's to come certainly has us excited.

'Outskirts' bubbles and blossoms on waves of delightfully churning synthesizers, upon which the vocals surf and splash in a seductively forlorn way, reminiscent of Kevin Parker of Tame Impala. The breezy song has a weightless quality, as if you're way out in the middle of nowhere, looking out across a large landscape delicately touched by sun and wind, which all combines to stir up a small torrent of emotions within.

Vocalist Yuto Ochino says that 'Outskirts' was "made when I was trying to express some feelings that I didn’t even notice I had in my mind. I tried to figure out what they were by making music. The muddiness of the sound expresses the state I was in."

Listen to 'Outskirts' below.
