If you’re looking for something a little more low-key, The fin. is for you. Formed in 2012, their first self-released EP, Glowing Red on the Shore, did so well that Hip Land Music gave it a full re-release in March of last year. They just released their first album in December 2014 and its chillwave sound is sure to please your ears.
