Originating from rural Ireland, Seán Finn is a multi-instrumental songwriter, grounded in pop and jazz. With a few years of songwriting under his belt, Seán’s homespun style provides a warm and inviting soundscape for his listeners. Seán is currently working together with sound engineer Jack Roulston on a project titled ‘Pencil In Regret’. The project consists of 10 songs that were written before and during the pandemic.
‘Summer Is Over’ is the final single to be released from his upcoming project ‘Pencil In Regret’. The track is an upbeat and serene banger that takes you back to when summers lasted forever and school days seemed so far away. The track is lushly produced by Finn, with warm vocal melodies, a playful bassline, melancholy guitars and a vibrant rhythm section that was produced by collaborator Conor Barry.
“I would describe ‘Summer Is Over’ as my first sincere attempt at writing a single. The production feels like it’s a big step in the right direction for me, it all sounds very clean and proper, yet it still sounds like me. It’s definitely my best song to date. It captures that melancholy feeling when the summer is drawing to a close, and your summer romance didn’t pan out the way you had hoped. Instead of facing the rejection at hand, you decide to focus on the positives. That kind of behaviour will catch up with you eventually, but in the moment it provides a little comfort. It might be naïve, but it’s nice.”
‘Summer Is Over’ will be released on the 17th of September.
