WATCH: Take An Acid Trip With FIDLAR In “Max Can’t Surf”

Since releasing their self-titled debut via Mom + Pop in late January, we’re assuming the guys of FIDLAR have been doing what they do best: getting drunk, eating tacos (Cool Ranch Dorito shell, anyone?) and playing their brand of house-party punk at ragers. The Los Angeles outfit released the video for “Max Can’t Surf” today, which leads us to assume that they’ve added hallucinogens to the aforementioned list.


 

“Max Can’t Surf” begins with FIDLAR friend Zuk placing a tab of acid on his tongue. The DayGlo-ensconced, Back to the Future 2–esque video then follows Brandon Schwartzel and Max Kuehn as they show off their dance moves and travel from Los Angeles to San Francisco to Egypt and finally to outer space on hover boards. There’s space pizza, lead singer Zac Carper as the Man in the Moon, guitarist Elvis Kuehn surfing on an comet and even an exploding planet. It screams FIDLAR, weird and wild, and we are absolutely digging it. 


Make sure to watch “Max Can’t Surf” below. You won't regret it!
