Straight off the bat, FIDLAR’s third album takes an unprecedented turn with the rap-punk of Get Off My Rock. While it’s a far cry from the band’s established sound, the spirit of the track still retains their signature frenetic energy.
Then you have a track like By Myself which takes the loneliness of self-medication and turns it into a jubilant anthem. Called You Twice is the heartfelt chronicling of a breakup featuring rap star K.Flay, while the explosive follower Nuke will shake you out of your reverie about a former flame.
FIDLAR excel at keeping listeners on their toes and it’s this skill that will keep us coming back for more.
