On the heels of their latest EP, Perplex City, the rising LA-based alternative hip-hop trio FRTNK (pronounced "Fourteen K") just dropped a brand new track, 'Let Go'. 'Let Go' is a song for the generation about the relationships that seem to be the norm now. The band elaborates, "it's about the game of wanting and missing somebody when you can't have them, but when they are there 'somehow' things still don't work. It's that endless circle we experience and know we should probably reject, but still find ourselves stuck in the loop. We are saying it's time to 'Let Go' of that." The song is the first released out of a slew of upcoming singles leading to the band's forthcoming EP, to be announced soon.
"We want people to hear the track wherever they are and get that nostalgic feeling about their relationships they keep avoiding. Take that feeling in then let it go and start dancing" - Benjamin Aragbaye
FRTNK (pronounced "Fourteen K") is an American alternative hip-hop trio hailing from the greater Los Angeles area, known as the Inland Empire. Formed by artists Benjamin Aragbaye, Bryan Ramos, and Barin Butler, the trio's musical style joins the electronic sounds of rock and Neo-RnB, while seamlessly merging it with heavy 808's and groovy synthesizers. Each being only in their early twenty's, their daring dream-like production laid with raps and harmonies has already generated comparisons to world renowned musicians like Outkast, Kanye West, The Neptunes, and The Gorillas. This book-smart, skater-type band has been studying music since they were in elementary school and they've found some way to blend and mesh opposing musical genres effortlessly. Their first official recorded work, Operation AU, was released in November 2011. This six track EP and their follow-up freshman project Moreno Beachhave peaked the interest of many indie & major labels in America and overseas. FRTNK's songs 'Imagine' and 'Can I Love You' have landed on the desk of Director Issa Rae, who is known for the hit YouTube show Awkward Black Girl. In addition, the group's latest EP, Perplex City, has been gaining momentum on Spotify. Ready to release more music, FRTNK has been working diligently in their California home studio recording and producing for themselves & other artists.
