Finnegan Tui Releases a Reflection of Darkness

New Zealand-born multi-instrumentalist and producer Finnegan Tui “has released a haunting electronica ballad, ‘Spring’, describing the search for hope at the darkest time of year,” the UK’s Notion magazine reports.

Tui nurtured his own musical talent from an early age, but he truly found himself in his move to London, earning a scholarship to study at the Guildhall School of Music. Tui immersed himself in the capital city’s artistic scene – beyond regular gigging, he also exhibited works at the Tate Modern and Barbican and took commissions from the likes of Channel 4.

“His new track, ‘Spring’, is an announcement of Tui’s unique musical sensibilities. With minimalist production that strips it all back to focus on his bold vocals, the track is a perfect reflection of those dark January days spent yearning for the comforting warmth of spring.”
