Watch The Frights’ Fun Video For ‘Kids’, And See Them On Tour

The Frights

 

The Frights are just kids, at least they want to be kids forever and they have a lot of fun dressing up like grown-ups in their new video for ‘Kids’. I saw them at the Echoplex a few weeks ago and they were an awesome riot of messy fun time. But you have to know that the Frights’ music has a huge poppy heart and an exuberance immediately communicative, making you jump like bouncing balls on a summer beach.,…But you also have to understand that the Frights are from beach city San Diego and it shows.

The song comes from their recent album ‘You Are Going To Hate This’ released on Dangerbird Records, and the music is high-energy bright garage-surf-pop with a nod to 50’s doo-wop and a laid-back punk attitude, a winning recipe for punk anthems capable to boost the most depressive mood, as only Los Angeles band FIDLAR can do it. And if you watch carefully, you would even be able to spot a Zac Carper cameo in the video, but who is paying attention at this point? The song is so infectious, frenetic, and upbeat that I forgot to say that their effortless hooks are as big as their guitar reverb-drenched riffs.

‘It’s about living with your parents and hating them and being a brat and once you’re finally out on your own you realize how hopeless you are and how they were right,’ said the Frights to describe their funny DIY clip.

Watching them on stage exulting joy and chaos, I understand they were right, this is the only way to go with life, having as much fun as possible and a carefree attitude like any of these California kids
