Hate us. Like us. Fuck us. FiKus.
A five-piece band from Northern New Jersey, FiKus combines many different styles of music and a wide range of influences to form what has been referred to as a sort of "electro-fuckadelic hip-rock". Without a definitive genre to call home, these adjectives are rooted in the different elements of what creates the sounds of FiKus; "electro" referring to the synthesizers, electronic drums, and stacks of effects pedals that smear the sounds waves with analog warmth and a digital dose; "funkadelic" referring to horns and percussion that supply the funky swagger for the party; and "hip-rock" referring to the progressive and edgy, in your face attitude that booms off the stage and out of the speakers. From song to song, FiKus demonstrates any number of these elements, or all at once, as they continue to keep their listeners on their feet, in both a literal and figurative sense.
