Fins in the Air is a song performed by Deep Cut.


Fins in the Air is a energetic song, that follows the electronic genre with its instruments. The song starts with a short dazzling instrumental intro, followed by Shiver singing a verse and then Frye singing one too. Then both of them sing before Shiver starts singing long notes while Frye does little raps, repeating this until both of them harmonize, and then the song loops. It is one of the two songs that can randomly play during a Splatfest Battle in Splatoon 3.


While you’re pondering which Splatfest team to join, know that that we’ll ALL be on “Team Great Tunes” thanks to Deep Cut's latest, Fins in the Air. Between Shiver’s sprawling vocals, Frye’s bouncy harmonies, and that dazzling intro, Musicology says it’s “straight fire.”

  • The intro of the preview version shown on Twitter[1] sounds different from the version used in the demo.


The title is a pun of the expression and phrase "put your hands in the air", used by some musicians in live concerts to hype up their audiences, and the fins that sea creatures have.
