Fintan McKahey – God Games

Fintan McKahey - God GamesFintan McKahey is a musician from Ireland that we’ve had the pleasure of connecting with and reviewing over the past years. Check out his review HERE that we did a while back. Well, he has returned with a new project called God Games and I’m personally digging it and I’m going to explain why you will too.

Fintan McKahey – God Games

First off, it still amazes me that Indie Music Plus has become connected with some of the best musicians around the world and Fintan is no exception. So, his new project God Games is “an eclectic, downtempo, alt-pop production, in the style of Ben Howard and Chet Faker” according to some notes I received for the review.  My first impressions of the songs are good! In fact, they’re great. This guy has grown so much in the past few years it’s amazing. The production of the track is probably the best I’ve heard come out of him yet.

Fintan’s music has really struck a chord with me this time. I truly enjoy his alt percussive folk sound. His vocals are genuine and his lyrics have meaning. In the other single he sent for review, “Cultural Trance”, I hear much of the same vibe coupled with more rhythm and groove than the title track “God Games”. At first, I wasn’t sure about the saxophone, but after a few listens I changed my mind and I actually think it adds a lot to the overall sound. I really dig the general vibe of both of these tunes and I’m seriously impressed with Fintan’s growth as an artist over the past few years.

“Fintan: Genesis Of An Artist” which is a short film by Stephen Bean, documenting the process involved in creating Fintan McKahey’s new record God Games. I love the place we have all reached in the Indie Music world where song videos have become the norm. Even just 5 years ago it doesn’t compare to where we are today collectively as artists. Fintan’s video above takes it to yet another level with a more intimate documentary style where the viewer gets a much better feel for Fintan’s style and personality. Kudos to Fintan and Stephen!
