Three singles from FRNZ will be released throughout the summer of 2016- Starting with Back to the Basics -a live fan favourite for years that has never seen a proper release and production but has surmounted 100,000 views on YouTube with a live acoustic performance with Dub Fx.
This will be followed by a the first Video clip from FRNZ “I’ve Been In It” Ft. CKRONO & LEO P. A glassy smooth R N B flavoured Trap anthem layered with vocals and lead guitar.
