Fresh from supporting UB40 and The Sherlocks, as well as performing a string of electric headline dates. Finn Forster returns with indie-rock anthem ‘Stay Right Till The End’, which yet again sends the Middlesbrough singer on his way to success.
In the form of his biggest sounding track yet, Finn has gone from strength to strength since his recent singles ‘Lonely Nights’ and ‘Remnants’ were released, gaining resounding media success with the title of BBC Introducing Track of the Week already under his belt twice.
Regularly described as the lovechild of Paolo Nutini and Caleb Followil, the Teesside artist has a knack for songwriting as he uses atmospheric lead guitar lines that intertwine with unforgettable melodies and lyricism. And when he gets on stage, he performs with a presence that demands attention in all the best possible ways.
With zero intentions of slowing down, there is new music, more live dates, and better content always in the pipeline for this artist. As he states: “Everything is falling into place since the whirlwind we all endured in 2020, for people just discovering my songs, as well as my fans who’ve witnessed my progression as an artist from the start, it’s without a doubt the most exciting time to date for all of us.”

‘Stay Right Till The End’ pairs together Electric, Bass and Acoustic guitars with pinpoint precision, almost effortlessly joined by upbeat drums that collectively creates an punchy arena sounding Indie Rock anthem that inevitably gets the blood flowing and the feet tapping. The cherry on the top comes from Finn’s vocals, tying everything together to ensure all the musicianship that’s gone into the track is taken up a level with smooth and undoubtedly memorable melodies.
“This single is Filled with complete honesty and tales of messy nights in my hometown of Middlesbrough. I’m proud of the final product me and my band have produced, it’s a tune we’ve been playing live for a few dates we’ve played this year, and one that a mad amount of spectators from all backgrounds have rushed over to ask about the release date and name of this tune. That’s what has played a big part in this song coming out. For the first time, it’s a single built from the response of fans, that’s special.”-Finn
