Whispers of a sophomore album from LA’s garage punks FIDLAR have been circling for months and finally we have something tangible! We’ve been getting rowdy to “Cheap Beer” since their early EPs in 2012 and 2013 self-titled debut and the anticipation for this new full length has kept our mouths watering.
In true FIDLAR fashion, bursts of instrumentals are paired with insecure lyrics, “Everybody’s got more money, they got more money than me / Why can’t anybody just give me some more money?” and the video keeps things loose with more than ten 90’s music video parodies including, of course, school girl uniforms a la Britney Spears. Directed by Ryan Baxley, FIDLAR is goofy, surrounded by grade-school style backdrops and cameos that will keep you in stitches for the 3:48 ride.
Can you name all of the videos FIDLAR parodies?
Too is slated for release on September 4 via Mom+Pop, tracklist below:
“40oz On Repeat”
“Leave Me Alone”
