Tim Finn – Escapade VG+/VG+

$16.00 Inc. GST

Escapade is a solo album by New Zealand singer-songwriter Tim Finn, best known for his work with the bands Split Enz and Crowded House. Released in 1983, this album marked Finn’s first major foray into solo work while he was still a member of Split Enz.

“Escapade” is characterized by its eclectic mix of musical styles, blending pop sensibilities with elements of new wave, rock, and a touch of world music influences. The album showcases Finn’s knack for catchy melodies and thoughtful, often introspective lyrics. His songwriting is both accessible and complex, offering layers of musical and lyrical depth.

The production of the album reflects the early 1980s aesthetic, with a polished sound that makes use of synthesizers and electronic effects, yet it doesn’t overshadow Finn’s skillful use of traditional instrumentation and his clear, emotive vocals.

One of the standout tracks is the hit single “Fraction Too Much Friction,” which combines a groovy rhythm with Finn’s distinctive vocal style, making it a memorable and radio-friendly track. Other notable songs include “Made My Day” and “Staring at the Embers,” which further exemplify his ability to weave intricate narratives within his music.

“Escapade” was well-received both critically and commercially, cementing Tim Finn’s status as a talented songwriter and performer in his own right, independent of his success with Split Enz. The album’s success also helped pave the way for his future endeavors, both as a solo artist and in collaboration with other musicians, including his brother Neil Finn in Crowded House.
