Finn LeMarinel has been showing off his guitar wizardry and wondrous falsetto tones for a while now, first in math rock band Trapped In Kansas, now on his own.
Single ‘Become’ is a warming song, beginning with some playful sounding percussion; the jolly sounding instruments then contrasted soon after with opening line “I don’t like what I’ve become”.
With syncopated rhythms and minimalist instrumentation, which adds to the atmosphere of the song, and further highlights LeMarinel’s tender songwriting.
Usually a man who likes to use his solo guitar in a percussive fashion, ‘Become’ is a very good outing from a man taking his craft very seriously.
