Dream pop duo Finkel is part of the rich framework that is the Los Angeles music scene. L.A. has long been a hotbed for emerging artists, with venues like the Whiskey a Go Go acting as a proving ground for bands like Led Zeppelin and The Doors. Nowadays, L.A.'s musical offerings are a veritable banquet, ranging from rock to hip hop and folk. Finkel's dreamy pop tunes are catchy and dreamy, dancing back and forth between tempos and beats. Influences from hip hop-style beats are evident throughout the music, but the lyrical stylization is reminiscent of psychedelic pop. While formally a duo, Finkel often plays live with a backing band to craft a full-bodied sound.
