Nicholas Friesen currently plays bass/writes songs in futurekids. The band's Say Goodnight to the Machines EP was mastered by Juno-winner Jamie Sitar (Destroyer, A.C. Newman).
He also makes lo-fi music in a sometimes band/solo project called Merch Table Delite.
In 2012, a spontaneous recording project called Video Brats made two EPs.
"(The d)ebut single from futurekids both soars and vaguely glowers which is a
very cohesive combination. It strikes a fine balance between vocal
introspection and soaring instrumentation." - Electric Sound of Joy (UK
“The band futurekids hail from Winnipeg, Manitoba but they have a sound bred and borne from the heart, dead center. From the very first notes of their official lead single “Merit Badge” you’re pulled inside all of its shoegazy glory.” – The Earology Dept. (Michigan music blog)
"Winnipeg's finest lo-fi indie rawk sextet."

"When it comes to a project like this one, a rough sound is what you aim for, a basement is your studio, and your fans are your friends. That’s worth bringing back."
- Stylus Magazine on Merch Table Delite
"He may be one of the most overlooked songwriters in Winnipeg today. The stripped down format for the show was the perfect showcase for his twisted storytelling. Like Chuck Klosterman trading stories with Jerry Stahl and Augusten Burroughs. Nobody "spins a yarn" and drops a two note groove like him. Do yourself a favor and check him out."
