Friko – the Chicago band made up of vocalist/guitarist Niko Kapetan and drummer Bailey Minzenberger – have announced their debut full-length, Where we’ve been, Where we go from here. It’s out February 16 on ATO Records. Today, they’ve shared its lead single, ‘Crashing Through’, along with a video directed by Alec Basse. Check it out below.
According to Kapetan, ‘Crashing Through’ is about “wanting better for yourself and the people around you, but wondering how you can possibly do that with the world we live in.”
Where we’ve been, Where we go from here was co-produced by Scott Tallarida and Jack Henry, and mastered by Heba Kadry. “One of the main things we want to do as a band is talk about what’s happening right now and everything we’re feeling, with an honesty and directness that gets through to people,” Kapetan said. “I hope that our music helps everyone feel more deeply, but in a way that goes beyond just reacting to the songs. I want it to pick people up, so that they can actually go out and do something with whatever they’re feeling.”
