The musician will be performing a one-off show at London’s Electric Ballroom on August 30, just a few days after he is expected to join his sister Billie Eilish for her headline shows at Reading and Leeds.

Finneas spoke to NME about his musical relationship with his sister – as well as his own endeavours – back in 2021, when he released his debut album ‘Optimist’.
“I like working with anyone that you could list that I’ve worked with,” Finneas said. “I haven’t had a terrible experience working with anybody. But I think just the intimacy of a relationship with a sibling is impossible to replicate or duplicate.”
The siblings worked together on ‘ocean eyes’, Eilish’s first major viral hit. “It gave us something from nothing, which is so unbelievable,” Finneas recalled. “So I always have this profound gratitude for that song – obviously, our careers have been built on different moments since then, but that was the thing without which we never had anything.”
In late 2022, the singer revealed that he was recovering from surgery on his collarbone, after “demolishing” it – and suffering a radial head fracture to his right elbow – in an electric bike accident. Fortunately, however, he did not have to miss the final dates of Eilish’s ‘Happier Than Ever’ tour.
