A light hearted commentary on the Gen-Z online culture with a touch of 90's flare. "Modern Medication" by Fionn is a witty pop track that packs a punch.
Following their latest release "Mattress On The Floor", which combined with their lush vocals and euphoric melody, the pair’s latest offering “Modern Medication” turns up the volume on their pop sensibility. Bringing together the best of today's contemporary with bohemian pop and adding a dash of 90's flare, Fionn's release is just as irresistible sonically as it is visually.
The duo notes, “'Modern Medication’ is a song about growing up with social media, and how it has affected the mentality of our generation. Being raised in Gen Z, we have never truly experienced life without our senses being overwhelmed by constant entertainment and pictures of what other people are doing. In the video, we wanted to represent the feeling of being on social media with shiny objects, colourful backdrops, fake poses, and fake smiles.”
Fionn’s Alanna and Brianne Finn-Morris might be young, but don’t let that fool you. The 21-year-old twins from White Rock, British Columbia, have been singing together for most of their lives. They officially “turned pro” when they started busking at Vancouver’s bustling Granville Island at the age of 12, and by the time they hit 14 they were playing around 100 shows a year, growing a fan base for a folk-pop sound centred around the sort of telepathically tight vocal harmonies that only siblings could deliver.
Appearances on local radio and TV soon followed, and the sisters entered—and won—a number of talent competitions. They also caught the ear of 604 Records founder Jonathan Simkin, who encouraged them to continue crafting original material.
Fresh faces that sing songs that suggest wisdom beyond their years, Fionn is a duo to be reckoned with.
