[Electronic] FRND – Erase

The Crooked Paintings crew have a couple of huge things going on currently. First, they partnered with BMG and the record they’re kicking off the partnership with is a new one from the one and only FRND. The song “Erase” isn’t something you’ll want to erase from memory any time soon and given how good it is, it’s not going to let you forget.

“Erase” is the next step in FRND’s unique pop/electronic crossover sound. Right from the get go he snags you with catchy chords and his subsequent voice that soothes like few others can. For the first minute that’s all we get – and that’s all we need. However, he expands the sound with percussion and ends up building into the chorus/drop. It’s an immensely beautiful record whose slow pace sets you at ease. Once the climaxes hit, you’re let in fully to the world of FRND. We’ve been in love with his records, but this one may be our favorite.

[Electronic] FRND – In Your Dreams EP

Ever since FRND launched we’ve been at the edge of our seat ready for his next move. Aside from single after single, all we had from him was a lovable koala that acted in his stead. Now, FRND has revealed himself to be the multi-platinum songwriter/producer Andrew Goldstein and delivered his debut EP, In Your Dreams.

Within this EP we get all the tracks he’s previously released and more. “Sticks And Stones” and “Substitute” can be found, with the additions of “Movies” and “Soap.” All together the EP displays FRND’s signature sound, one that has impressed a large number of fans across the world already. FRND is just getting started, so it will be interesting to see where he goes from here. Now that his identity has been revealed, we’re sure the veteran has a long career ahead with this new project.

FRND – Be Happy (Syence Remix) [TMN Premiere]

Be Happy (Syence Remix)

Even though FRND just released the single (and music video) for the song “Be Happy” that wasn’t enough. To expand the single further, FRND enlisted the help of Syence for a sweet official remix that you get a first listen to in this Music Ninja Premiere.

Syence keeps a somewhat similar vibe to the original, but adds in his own future bass touches to the mix. In its new form, “Be Happy” is a bit more bubbly, with a slightly increased groove that makes it a bit more dance-able and light-hearted. Enjoy a first listen to Syence’s take and check below to see just what the producer had to say about taking on this project.

Our remix of FRND’s Be Happy came together cohesively. We thought taking the emotionally dark lyrics and putting them in a much more uplifting scene worked really well, so we focused on all the good times we’ve had with people before they’ve moved on from our lives to create this track.

[Music Video] FRND – Be Happy

What we’re used to from FRND is the release of a great single. With his fourth original release however, it’s not just a great song we’re getting, but a sweet animated music video to go along with it. The project is “Be Happy” and that’s just how we’re feeling for this one.

Now, “Be Happy” isn’t as straightforward as you may think. The lyrics don’t paint a simple scenario, rather one that has multiple layers underneath the general claim (and name) of the song. It represents a matured moment in life, one that isn’t so easy to come to with regard to relationships – or as the song describes, past relationships. Yet again FRND sways us with a magical track and the video takes all the emotions to the next level. It’s a smash hit and it’s something your library needs. Add it through iTunes today.

If you’ve ever been in this situation, don’t be surprised if you end up reaching for some tissues.

It’s more than just a bunch of tones together, it’s a genuine expression that you can feel. Stream the song today and see just what FRND had to say about the song below.

Substitute is about realizing you’re someone’s option while they are your priority. You know what you feel is real but they refuse to leave their comfort zone and commit to you. In other words, just break up with your bf already.
