Finneas attempts to go full savage mode on his latest track “I Don’t Miss You At All,” which he released today (Sept. 20) ahead of his debut EP Blood Harmony due Oct. 4. The not-so-broody bop falls short in disguising remorse for his previous relationship.
“This song is about trying (and failing) to convince yourself that you’re over someone,” Finneas said about the synth-tinged track in a press release. “Remembering all your absolute favorite things about them and pretending they mean nothing to you now.”
He continued, “I wrote it on a toy guitar in a hotel in New York while we were on tour this summer. Just a lil indie movie darling.”
The 22-year-old producer and artist toys with the small details about his ex, like her “Jasmine tuberose and lily” scent, “silly French accent” and green eyes “that if he’d seen would make F. Scott Fitzgerald cry.” He plugs the author of the 1925 classic novel Great Gatsby, who constantly refers to a green light throughout the book partially representative of Jay Gatsby’s undying love for and possibly happy ever after with Daisy Buchanan.
Finneas channels that same yearning to reunite with his past lover and even effuses anger when the past seems to bleed into the present for a bittersweet reminder: “But I think our song is comin’ on / And now I wanna crash the car.”
