Following the release of their 2nd single, Frederic comes back with their new mini album, TOGENKYO, to be released on the 18th of October. The band is ready to give their fans 7 songs including the title track and “Sadness and Joy”, the opening theme for the TOKYO MX animation series “Koi to Uso” which they released last August.

Composed and arranged by Koji Mihara, their unique rock vibe gives Togenkyo (桃源郷), which literally translates as Eden, the groovy mood in contrast to what the song talks about: the struggle of expressing and dealing with one’s emotions and transparency. The lyrics reveal a picture of someone who is very eager to convey his true feelings and get the attention of that person he considers as his paradise.

The music video, on the other hand, shows a realistic view of the difficulty, focusing on a girl who seems to ignore what she truly feels, trying to keep it all inside, constantly passing by all the chances that came her way. In the end, she dances, screams and runs but she finds herself alone, tired and panting. The title appears on her chest, revealing that the place where she is trying to get to all this time is herself, a place that defies imagination. The album cover compliments Frederic’s colorful music and they backed it up with bright LED lights and a touch of optical illusion, a quick view on how perspective is affected by the angle of which we are looking at.

The band is now preparing to hit the stage of their 3 sets of sold-out tours beginning on October 21. Are you ready to get into Frederic’s paradise?
