Real Friends are streaming “Mokena” off of their new album The Home Inside My Head, out May 27, 2016 via Fearless Records below.
Bassist Kyle Fasel explains:
“Lyrically, the song covers a lot of ground. It’s a timeline, really. It sheds light on my earliest memories and into my teen years. It even talks about present day and also mentions making the wrong decisions, learning from them, and finally getting over the stuff that brings you down in life. Life can be hard. That never goes away, but it’s a great feeling when you look and see that you finally got past whatever used to make you fall. ‘Mokena’ is a song about growth. Hope everyone enjoys it.”
The band has been nominated for 2016 Press Music Awards for Artist Of The Year, and will be on this year’s Vans Warped Tour and Slam Dunk Festival in the UK this summer.
