Look Up Look Out: Watch FIDLAR fight off paranoia in new Super 8mm-shot video for ‘Drone’

 

Drones are so hot right now. Eagles are fucking them up, midwesterners are shooting them down, and even Muse are getting in on the fun.

Today, as they get set to hit the road this fall, Los Angeles skate-punk band FIDLAR have some “Drone” of their own in their latest music video. The clip for “Drone” was directed by the band’s longtime collaborator Ryan Baxley, and, according to relayed messages, “tells a campy sci-fi story about aliens chasing after a paranoid conspiracy theorist.” It was shot on Super 8 film, all of the props and costumes were homemade, and as Baxley describes it, the video “looks like it was done by a bunch of 12 year olds in 1979.”

“Drone” appears on the band’s upcoming second album, Too, due out on September 4 on Mom+Pop. As part of their cross-country tour, FIDLAR will play Boston Calling Music Festival in late September, so be sure to look up in paranoia as you rock out at City Hall Plaza.

 

Check out FIDLAR’s full run of dates after the video.
