Los Angeles' own alternative hip-hop duo FRTNK (Fourteen K) released their brand new track, "Aqua" via TeamBackPack this week.
The sentiment behind the song is to live care free, and be happy despite the struggles you may face. The band explains, "it's a playful track that's meant to ignite that childlike feeling in all of us. From the playful melody to shouting out the vowels, how we can combat our adulthood is by reigniting the simplicity of just living in the now like we did when we were kids."

"Aqua" is a song about letting go of the struggles in life and allowing yourself to be happy. The band elaborates, "Aqua" is one of the singles leading to the band's forthcoming EP, to be announced soon.
FRTNK (pronounced "Fourteen K") is an American alternative hip-hop group hailing from the greater Los Angeles area, known as the Inland Empire. Formed by artists Benjamin Aragbaye, Bryan Ramos and Barin Butler, the group'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" landing on the desk of Director Issa Rae. FRTNK has been working diligently in their California home studio recording and producing for themselves & other artists.
