Video of the Moment #1889: FIDLAR

By on Sunday, 16th August 2015 at 6:00 pm

FIDLAR seem to be the kind of band that you just know they’re having a laugh with anything they’re doing with their music, as well as having a laugh at our expense. The group from Los Angeles have a new video out now for ‘Drone’, which seems pretty timely, given here in America the very existence of these electronic thingamabobs is starting to get on everyone’s nerves. However, you will see that in the song and in the video, they’re not talking about the airborne annoyances but instead hard-working, underappreciated poor schlubs as profiled in a better light by Manchester’s Elbow in their most recent EP.

Playing aliens in this grainy footage, FIDLAR follow a prime – and hapless – example of such a worker bee around town in an attempt to steal his brain. Yes, you read that right. If this description has intrigued you enough, watch the video for the song below. FIDLAR’s sophomore album ‘Too’ is out on the 4th of September on Wichita Recordings; catch them on tour in the UK in November.
