Finom Announces New Album Not God & Releases Haircut Music Video

Chicago’s own Sima Cunningham and Macie Stewart, who once rocked the indie scene under the moniker Ohmme, are back with a bang. This time, they’re introducing us to their latest project, Finom. Their debut album, *Not God*, is set to drop on May 24, courtesy of Joyful Noise. It’s a date to circle in red on your calendars, folks.

Leading the charge is their single “Haircut,” complete with a music video that’s as intriguing as it is entertaining. Picture this: the band, a magician, and a narrative that unfolds in the most unexpected ways. The magician? None other than Alex Grelle, a director with a knack for the extraordinary. You’ve gotta see it to believe it.

Now, let’s dive a bit deeper. Cunningham, aside from her musical talents, plays a role in the production of the Pitchfork Music Festival. Stewart, on the other hand, brings her own unique flair to the duo. Together, they teamed up with producer Jeff Tweedy at Wilco’s Loft studio in Chicago to bring *Not God* to life. Their collaboration? Pure magic.

The duo shared some insights about “Haircut,” revealing the song’s quirky origin. It seems the lyrics were inspired by the stream of suggested words from Macie’s phone robot. Yes, you heard that right. A phone robot. They wanted to express a desire to say “no” more often, to reclaim control over their time. And who better to visualize their message than Alex Grelle? His direction brought their vision to life, alongside a talented group of artists.

Their inspiration came from an unexpected source – a short film by France Gall, shown to them by Jeff and Spencer Tweedy during the recording process. It’s fascinating how creativity sparks from the most unforeseen places.

Remember Sima Cunningham and Macie Stewart’s 2020 album, *Fantasize Your Ghost*? It was a hit, and if you missed it, now’s your chance to catch up. With *Not God*, they’re ready to take us on a new journey. One that promises to be as captivating as their last. So, mark your calendars and get ready to be mesmerized once again by the duo’s undeniable talent.
