"How Will Our Hero Get Out Of This One" by Fins is a silky smooth pop concoction

The song How Will Our Hero Get Out Of This One by Berlin based Fins (Andi Fins) is a vivid and so cool keyboard based song built on late 70's-ish flourishes, a light jazz framework and heavy pop walls of sound. I think of artists like the Doobie Brothers, Daryl Hall and John Oats, the much maligned Michael McDonald and even Steely Dan. Back then their brand of pop was called just that and now artists like Fins might be considered yacht pop. Call it what you like it is so silky smooth, captivating and oh so cool and I love the story telling here. Love it.
