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.

Beginning, Middle and End: Ash's Tim Wheeler On Crafting 'Islands'
Tue 14 Aug 2018
Once we had survived a punishing winter that would have made even your average White Walker cling to their hot water bottle, it came time to talk ‘soundtrack to the summer’. As ever, the conversation pretty much started and finished with Ash. Possessing a typically enchanting feelgood factor that belied the heartache at its core, the Northern Irish trio’s new album ‘Islands’ was tailor made to accompany bright blue skies and long lazy days topping up your tan.

Slaves - Acts of Fear and Love (Album Review)
Tue 21 Aug 2018
Whether it’s because they’ve pricked the ears of primetime Radio 1 DJs, or because they’ve signed to one of the biggest record labels in the world, or because their songs spout trite counterculture messages, the likes of which any 16-year-old has already heard too many times, Slaves always come across as punk-lite. It’s been said that they’re punk for those who don’t really know what punk is, and their new record, ‘Acts of Fear and Love’, proves that maxim still rings true.

Miles Kane - Coup de Grace (Album Review)
Wed 15 Aug 2018
No matter how much Miles Kane might like to think of himself as a solo act, the fact remains that he’s always struggled to emerge from the shadows of his more revered pals. He’s scored two number one albums with The Last Shadow Puppets, but those have to be viewed in the context of Alex Turner’s contributions. Of his own material, how much do you remember aside from a couple of chanty singalongs?
Interpol - Marauder (Album Review)
Tue 04 Sep 2018
Photo: Jamie-James Medina Having dispensed with the anagrams following the release of the excellent ‘El Pintor’ four years ago, Interpol’s sixth album ‘Marauder’ is the subject of a production shift. Not since 2007’s ‘Our Love To Admire’ have they employed an outside producer, so it’s somewhat surprising to find Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, the Flaming Lips) at the helm here.
