Single Review – FIDLAR – West Coast

“A Call To Arms for Suburban Teenagers” was one of the critiques of L.A guitar thrashers FIDLAR and their latest album Too and as well as many of us not really buying into their style, we’re not really buying into the waves of middle class teens swooning over them as a statement of style over substance. That final statement sums up the album and this single ‘West Coast’ as if they haven’t already screamed out the fact they’re from California and they like it. With almost every track from the album this one has thrashing guitars and screaming pop-punk vocals. It is another track that has managed to travel forward through time from 1999, blissfully unaware of the changes of the last two decades. There’s no doubt that their live performances are an manic experience, but with the volume high and with big enough speakers then anyone could have an audience that manic.
