Fintan McKahey is a low-fi indie singer/songwriter from Cork, Ireland. He started playing and writing music at a young age and has been releasing music since 2016. A multi-instrumentalist and producer, he is proficient across several instruments and produces all of his own music. His 2019 Debut EP “God Games” received critical acclaim from radio and press, as did his 2020 single “Platinum.” He has performed in major venues across the country, including support slots for the likes of The Scratch, Junior Brother, and Roisin O.

After the success of the previous song “Platinum”, Fintan McKahey is ready to go back to the music scene with a lo-fi/pop new single “Goodbye”. The entirety of the song was written and recorded in McKahey’s home studio in West Cork, where he is continuing the family legacy as the son of Stump drummer, Rob McKahey and the nephew of Cousteau singer, Liam McKahey. The track sees acoustic elements blend with downtempo beats and ambient production.

Luscious vocals from fellow Irish singer Ava Archbold complete this melancholic single. “Goodbye” is a love song, looking at things from the other side of the fence. It’s an observation of the struggle at the end of a relationship when both sides are clinging on in hope of salvation. Their sweet and delicate voice perfectly knows how to communicate the melancholy that it follows after the end of a relationship. Fintan McKahey tries to make us understand that often trying to hold back is more tiring than letting go…
