    In April, FIDLAR hit the liquor cabinet and got wasted. June saw them have a cigar and jam out to Pink Floyd. And, just last month, the California punk rockers lit one up on the single “Are You High?”. Things for FIDLAR take a serious turn here in September, however.

    On their latest single, “Too Real”, Zac Carper and his crew take all the internalized anxiety and frustration that comes with being a goddamn American in 2018 and they let it fly in the form of screeching guitars and even more savage screaming. The rage is real here — critiques for all political parties, for society as a whole, for the evolution (or de-evolution) of the human race. It’s all very dismal, but also — and this is what hurts the most — entirely accurate. “Was that too fucking real?” Carper repeatedly asks on the track, which is actually more kick-ass noise-rock than punk and I am Here For It. Maybe it is too real, but also maybe that’s what we need to hear.
