Watch: FIDLAR - 40oz On Repeat

Everyone’s favourite LA burnouts return with a raucous ode to self-loathing and self-destruction.

FIDLAR have rarely been ones for restraint. Their 2013 debut self-titled album could easily be described as brick-on-the-gas-pedal-head-out-the-window-screaming anthems about the futility of love and life as a no good waste of space.

That’s why it’s refreshing to hear moments of peace and quiet on 40oz On Repeat, the first single from their forthcoming sophomore, Too (due September 4 on Mom+Pop Records/Warner Music Australia). “Because everybody’s got somebody/everybody but me” Zac Carper gently croons on top of glockenspiel lullabies, right before the band explodes all over again and he’s back to destroying his vocal chords with his trademark gravelly yelps. Easy come; easy go it seems.

“I didn’t want to make a standard rock record. The goal for this album was to think outside the box and I think Jay (Jay Joyce, producer) really helped us do that,” Carper says of the new album. It’s clear from the first taste that FIDLAR are experimenting with the standard verse-chorus-verse structure of their older material to bring us something fresh and exciting, without throwing away that accessiblity that made them so compelling in the first place.

Because really, who can’t relate to being broke, drunk, and heartbroken? And, you can't help but love a look back through some of history's biggest music video moments from the likes of Oasis, Beastie Boys, Missy Elliott and Green Day on the excellent clip below:
