" “The New Year Came” is the first single from Katie Fry’s forthcoming full length debut album, ‘Running Against The Wind.’ The song opens with a soulful, R&B-tinged piano/vocal intro. An organic ensemble of acoustic guitar, organ, bass and drums gradually enters the mix. The song transitions to an Alt-Country vibe as Katie delivers a wistful look back at a year and a love, both now in the past. In the final verse the warm analog feel of the recording really comes through as Katie takes the lead on flute for a mellow jamband groove." -The Static Dive
