The Finns emerged from a confluence of Spokane bands in 2010. Through time they have been distilled to three members, but their sound is huge. Combining melancholic indie rock sounds with Michael's Jim Morrison-like vocal delivery, they have successfully merged new and classic elements. Haley lends melodies (on both guitar and bass) to Michael's strumming and arpeggios while Weston yields a wide dynamic range on the drums. These tonal colors support Michael's lyrics drawn from personal experiences and fantastic tales. They released their EP "The Storm Past" in October, which drew its inspiration from the farewell concert of Spokane's beloved Mon Chéri. The Finns will share some CD tracks and full-band live songs at the 103.1 KCDA Local Lounge on the eve of their concert at Jones Radiator.
