Published Nov 09, 2015Toronto psych rockers Frend are plotting the release of a new LP titled So What, What?, but before it arrives, they've shared a two-song sampler of the upcoming album.
Consisting of Mikhail Galkin and Jay Anderson, the duo describe their sound as the meeting of "psychedelia, pop and boom-bap." It's an amalgamation of influences that shines through on the retro haze of "This Goodbye" and the groove-infused hip-hop offering "Jaws Open." The former credits Drew Smith with an appearance, while the latter boasts an appearance from rapper Abbah.
