Fynch & Local Boy challenge toxic masculinity on ‘Big Man’

It’s Fynch’s first release since ‘Bookie Pens and Loose Ends’ dropped in October 2019.

Buner Records co-founder and Ireland’s likely nomination for any potential Eurovision style football pub quiz Fynch is back with a bang. Having not released any solo music he’s returned with a dance-inducing effort with Kaytranada-esque production from Danish producer Mikkel Boelt.

Warning people of the dangers of toxic masculinity, he invites friend and close collaborator Local Boy to showcase the benefits of unapologetic brotherhood.

On the new cut, the Drimnagh rapper says, “Those characteristics aren’t easy to shake off. Whether it’s conscious or not, there’s still that ‘be a man’ inference when it comes to men showing vulnerability.”
“You just need to be honest with yourself, certainly I know myself that I haven’t rid myself of the worst aspects of ‘manliness’. I’m a work in progress, that end goal is to just be a better person.”

FYNCH and Local Boy are set to play Ireland Music Week on October 6-9. Local Boy will play a headline show at the Workman’s Club on November 13.
