FIDLAR – “West Coast”
After jacking up our enthusiasm for sophomore album Too with “40 Oz. On Repeat” and its hilarious video, SoCal garage-pop all-stars FIDLAR have shared their second new track of 2015. The aptly named “West Coast,” which premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC1 radio show today, is not a Lana Del Rey cover. Actually, it’s the most Titus Andronicus-reminiscent song in FIDLAR’s oeuvre, especially when the bridge kicks in. The real selling point, though, is the snotty sing-along melody that functions as the song’s wordless chorus. Jump into it below, where you’ll also hear an interview about the band’s plans for Reading and Leeds festivals, the “40 Oz. On Repeat” video, and their upcoming “West Coast” video.
Too is out 9/4 on Mom + Pop. Pre-order it here.
