That’s a good thing, because when it comes to reckless abandon, FIDLAR are almost peerless. Following up on the equally self-destructive ‘Alcohol’, ‘Are You High? Ft. The 90s’ staggers past in it’s own intoxicated haze. It might be stoned off its face, but it at least remembers it had to tell us something about a massive slacker pop hook line.
