3.6 greatErwann S. STAFF | March 6th 24

Friko's debut testifies to a surprising maturity. They nail the noisy indie rock sound they're going for (much less the more somber chamber pop one), with the hard-hitting tracks especially shining thanks to their tight balance between dynamic rhythms and catchy melodies.

The debut album from Chicago-based band Friko shows a significant promise in crafting noisy and expansive indie rock. Much of the album embraces the noisy and grand style reminiscent of 2000s indie rock anthems, such as those by Neutral Milk Hotel and The Microphones. The combination of bittersweet lyrics with anthemic instrumentals creates a potent listening experience. "Where we've been, Where we go from here" particularly brings to mind the promise demonstrated by Remo Drive on their own debut album many years ago, albeit without the overt emo influence. Overall, Friko delivers an anthemic and breathtaking indie album that has the potential to become one of my favorites of the year.
