Madeline Finn Releases New Single “Love Me Like I Love You”
The moody, midtempo “Love Me Like I Love You” showcases Finn’s musical range. Her voice is open and honest–resigned, disappointed, and melancholy–as she comes to the realization that it’s best to let a partner go, since their emotions just aren’t aligned (“You don’t bend me like I break you”). And while driven throughout by brittle piano, “Love Me Like I Love You” is bolstered by sighing backing harmonies, heartbeat-steady drums, and a thundering bridge full of scorching electric guitar fuzz.
Madeline Finn touches on a wide range of sonic directions in her solo work: sparse folk, meditative piano ballads, twangy rock, and string-laced indie. Luckily, the Cleveland-raised singer-songwriter is also the rare vocal talent with the range to handle just about any music she wants to write. She’ll howl and whisper, rage and mourn, croon and conspire—always with breathtaking precision and heart-piercing sincerity. A Top 70 American Idol finalist in 2018, Finn has also fronted two bands (the pop-punk-leaning band Envoi, Americana-tinged trio Whiskey Hollow) and toured throughout New England, the Pacific Northwest, and her adopted hometown of Nashville. Currently she’s looking to put out a new solo album mixed by Dave Schiffman (Jimmy Eat World, Weezer, Frank Turner) later this year.
