Video: FIDLAR – “By Myself”
From Almost Free, out January 25 on Mom+Pop.
FIDLAR goes disco!
Don’t want to bury the lede here so I’ll just point out that Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist has cut his hair since the last time I saw his hippie locks at Riot Fest in 2016. Phew!
But back to the new song…
Good old Zac Carper is back with another tale about his misspent youth and fragile psyche.
Well I’m cracking one open with the boys by myself
And everybody thinks that I need professional help
But I don’t wanna think about that anymore
And just because I woke up on someone’s floor
And asked, Who the fuck am I?
I didn’t know it felt good to cry
But before you get too nervous for him he asks, “Why does getting sober make you feel like a loner?”
