FIDLAR have shared a video for their new single, Too Real.

It is the latest in a string of standalone tracks to emerge from the garage-punks, following Are You High? (ft. The 90s) and Alcohol, which came out earlier this summer.

It's a much more chaotic proposition than its predecessors, with vocalist and guitarist Zac Carper's addressing wider problems facing society, particularly politically. He said:

“‘Too Real’ was written during the election when everyone was fighting each other. The reality is that everyone fuckin’ sucks. Why can’t we all just get along/bong?”

Head below to watch the song's video, which stacks pop culture clips of Rambo and Care Bears alongside footage of the California wildfires.

Tue 22 Jan 2019
When football fever gripped England in the summer of 2018, as Gareth Southgate’s side saw off Sweden to book a place in the World Cup semi-finals, the celebrations extended to the sweltering heat of London’s Hyde Park. A huge crowd had assembled to witness a similarly colossal line-up curated by the Cure at British Summer Time, swapping the pubs and bars of the capital for sweeping goth-pop following the final whistle.

Steve Mason - About The Light (Album Review)
Thu 24 Jan 2019
‘About the Light’, Steve Mason’s first collection since 2016, is a raucous album of finely tuned British rock that gyrates and swaggers with skill and precision. It’s an excellent turn from a musician whose decades-long musical career has taken him on a journey through folktronica, experimental indie and the borderlands of downtempo shoegaze, and who has been through multiple reinventions since the Beta Band called it quits.
Blood Red Shoes - Get Tragic (Album Review)
Thu 31 Jan 2019
Blood Red Shoes’ fifth studio album is a lairy procession of ‘90s-infused indie-rock songs that make great use of Laura-Mary Carter’s sexy, laconic burr. Created after the band fell out—and Carter promptly left for L.A.—the Brighton duo built bridges and got to work. The result is probably their best work since 2008’s ‘Box of Secrets’.
Sharon Van Etten - Remind Me Tomorrow (Album Review)
Wed 23 Jan 2019
Photo: Ryan Pfluger We’ve all got them: those little chores we should be getting on with. Posting that letter. Watering our houseplants. Shaving our legs. Sharon Van Etten’s got them, too, but she favours a different approach to these small administrative tasks. ‘Remind Me Tomorrow’, her fifth album, is about being more present and not giving a shit about the small stuff.
