Fueled by a youthful energy and enthusiasm to create, FRED is a new project on the scene by Freddie Criales and Tristan Torres of Orlando band Magnolia Park. Today they share their new single, “Bloated,” which features Weezer-like riffs layered with modern production driven by pulsating synths. About the track FRED explains, “If you have someone in your life that just constantly gives you problems and brings you down, ‘Bloated’ is the reminder to cut them from your life.”
FRED made their debut with anti-pop anthem “U Want Me Dead” and then released a pair of singles titled “Monday” and “Self Destruct” which both dealt with issues related to mental health. Inspired by a new wave of artists in the alt and anti-pop scenes, FRED is a multimedia endeavor created with simple goals in mind – to make music for people who feel like they’re outsiders and to create great art.
