McKahey foretells apocalyptic future

Following the success of his latest EP and title track, ‘God Games’, Fintan McKahey returns with a dark and sultry new single, ‘The Rebound Effect’, set for release on 8 September.

Continuing his exploration of mellow alt-pop, this new track invites listeners to share in an apocalyptic doomsday landscape, with lyrics lamenting the end of the world as a result of mankind’s greed having led to the exploitation and demise of its natural resources.

Fintan wrote this pensive song after a sinister dream about the end of the world. The musician describes the song with hard-hitting honesty as “being about karma really, that the earth is going to kill everyone including itself, because of our actions. In a way we are killing ourselves with our own laziness and greed.” This single comes at a crucial time, offering an evocative and mocking appraisal of mankind’s misdeeds through McKahey’s ability to portray powerful imagery through his lyrics.

The son of Stump drummer Rob McKahey, he is a multi-disciplinary artist involved in music and acting, photography and dance.

This single was recorded and produced in Fintan’s home studio in West Cork and mastered by Darren Jennings in Woodside Sound Studios. ‘The Rebound Effect’ is out 8 September with a launch show in The Roundy in Cork city.
