The Finches - Step Outside

posted by on January 17 at 14:32 PM

I don’t know much about this group, but I do know that I’m in love with this song right now. There’s something about the girls voice, and the guy, when he joins in. It’s definitely freak folk, but nice and not cloying and kooky-dooky like so much freak folk you hear these days. You know what I mean?

“Step Outside” is from The Finches album Human Like a House, which was released last year. It’s not a single, and I couldn’t find a very good copy of them performing the track on YouTube.

But I did find the video in which I heard the track for the first time. It’s from Think Thank’s snowboarding video Thanks Brain and features in this segment with Gus Engle. It shouldn’t, but it does work.

Anyways, enjoy this snippet of “Step Outside” (which begins about 16 sec. into the vid).
