Friko - Get Numb To It!

Chicago based outfit Friko — vocalist/guitarist Niko Kapetan and drummer Bailey Minzenberger — have shared the final teaser from their forthcoming album as they look set to 'Get Numb To It!'. Lifted from Where we’ve been, Where we go from here, out February 16th on ATO Records, the latest single serves to be my favourite yet with its exhilarating guitar layers and huge pop sensibilities. “When we recorded that song Niko and I were each on pianos on opposite sides of the room, just slamming on them for texture,” says Bailey. “There are moments all over the record where we were both improvising at the same time, but they’re mostly used in a very subtle way, without making it the main focal point.” Take a listen for yourselves below.
