Fintan McKahey Shares ‘Cultural Trance’

‘Cultural Trance’ is the next single to be released by Fintan McKahey from his new ‘God Games EP’.

The song is an observation and personal commentary on his own journey through current pop culture and it is one of three songs to feature in ‘Fintan: Genesis of an Artist’, a short music documentary by Cork filmmaker S.H.Bean. The film observes Fintan’s creative process, as he makes the journey from wild Atlantic beaches, to the bright lights of our rebel city. It has been well received at several film festivals and selected at the new Audio Shoot Unsigned International Music Video & Film Festival; which takes place the weekend of 6-7th July in Wexford. It may also be viewed on Fintan’s own YouTube channel.

“If you want to check out just one song, then listen to ‘Cultural Trance’, about the dangers of possibly the greatest scourge in modern Ireland, group-think; this song gives me faith in the next generation!” – Gary Hannon, West Cork People

The EP ‘God Games’ is an eclectic, down tempo, alt-pop production, in the style of Ben Howard and Chet Faker. Fintan’s sound has developed beyond the more folk-based, percussive style evident on his debut EP, Two Lifetimes Late. This new EP, ‘God Games’, is inspired by both the rugged landscape of his own homeland, and influenced by his travels through Kenya, Thailand and Peru, where Fintan spent time with indigenous cultures exploring alternative belief systems.

Fintan grew up in West Cork and is continuing the family legacy, as the son of Stump drummer, Rob McKahey and the nephew of Cousteau singer, Liam McKahey. A multi disciplinary artist, Fintan continues to work as a performer and enjoys collaborating with other artists across the mediums of film, photography and dance. He has enjoyed supporting The 4 Of Us, Roisin O, Thanks Brother, Leo Stannard and The Scratch on their Irish tour dates at Live at St. Lukes, Cork, Whelan’s in Dublin and DeBarras Folk Club in Clonakilty.

The lead track from ‘God Games’ has been well supported by many Irish radio stations. Selected at Today FM (PLAYIRISH Today Song of the Week), Cork’s 96FM (Local Legend), KCLR (Song of the Week on Roddie’s IMS), Eirewave (Best Irish Indie Playlist) RedFM, WLR, (Song of the Day), and more.
