FIDLAR – “Get Off My Wave” & “Fix Me”

FIDLAR – “Get Off My Wave” & “Fix Me”

Last year, the LA garage-punk band came out of hiatus with their EP That’s Life, and they also covered Limp Bizkit and Jackson Browne. Today, FIDLAR have announced the impending release of their self-produced album Surviving The Dream, the follow-up to 2019’s Almost Free.

Surviving The Dream is FIDLAR’s first album since frontman Zac Carper was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. New singles “Get Off My Wave” and “Fix Me” are fast, giddy, and propulsive, and they sound way more raw and immediate than the stuff I’ve heard from this band in recent years. “Fix Me” has a video where Sosie Bacon — star of Smile, daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick — lip-syncs it at karaoke.

In a press release, Zac Carper says:

This record is about doubling down on what you love. For us, it’s about playing shows and making music. Coming back after a few years away, our intention was to self-make an album that the three of us are stoked on. We’re very very very pumped on it and what’s to come. These songs are meant to be heard live with the fellow FIDIOTS going off.
