Making it’s worldwide premiere right here, right now, Fonz continues The Freshmen’s longstanding streak of genre-defying behavior (see Imagine, Dreamin’ California, etc.). Behind the board group member Kristo provides a bouncing, rock infused anthem, also putting in work on the mic alongside A.

If you’re looking for music that doesn’t sound like anything else out there, any maybe the occasional Amelia Earhart reference, look no further than The Fonz.
