Finley Quaye – Much More Than Much Love

Six years and three albums later, FQ is still one big enigma

Trending Now

Tricky customer is young Finley. Aloof, enigmatic, prone to periods of going AWOL, his ability to throw up a high-grade smoke screen to disguise his undoubted talents may have worn all patience thin. Still, he’s got that voice and knows how to wrench sympathetic performances from a supporting cast of Anglo-African players. Quaye’s usual blend of dub reggae, the lightest hip hop and a new shot of weird country are stretched under his often oddball lyrics and idiosyncratic world view. “This Is How I Feel” and “Face To Face” exemplify Fin’s rather unique house style and elusive personality. No change there, then.
