Review: "Bad at Being Casual" - Fionn

Bad at Being Casual by Fionn

It’s the summer of situationships and the blurred lines that come with them. “Bad at Being Casual” is Fionns second single release from their upcoming EP. If you’re a fan of Wet Leg or The Beaches, this duo is for you. Their new song is a must listen for anyone stuck in this situation… or in this case, ‘situationship.’ This single is an indie pop track that dives deeper into the new dating phenomenon. Fionn says that this song highlights the internal chaos while presenting a cool exterior, and you can truly feel that within the music. The song feels energetic and fun while the lyrics contain panic and insecurities.

Putting a label on connections you have with someone else can be exciting yet just as terrifying. In todays world most of us choose to play it safe by avoiding labels, even though it will end in a broken heart. ‘Bad at Being Casual’ portrays the narrative of someone who easily catches feelings in waves of meaningless attention. In the first verse there’s a line that says, “Cause your apartment floor’s my revolving door, I walk through then I’m back again.” I thought this perfectly depicted what it’s like seeing someone without truly seeing them. You’re there for the 1am call to come over and gladly do it, but once business is done they send you on your way with no strings attached. It can suck when your heart longs for depth but you have to stay on the surface.

Fionn is an incredibly talented duo comprised of sisters, Alanna and Brianne Finn-Morris. They released their self-titled debut back in 2018 and have continued to develop their artistry ever since. Their discography has grown immensely as well as the variety of sound they add to their songs. These sisters were brought up in a musical family in Vancouver which explains their undeniable gift as musicians. ‘Bad at Being Casual’ is just a glimpse at what we will get to hear on their next EP. According to the duo, they are on their pop/rock path while singing about personal relationships in their 20’s. Following Fionn on the links down below to stay alert on their future releases, you won’t want to miss.
