The Fluids have also announced an official album release show that’s happening at Mercury Lounge on October 26th, with support from their label-mate KILLEN. No Kidding! was produced by Matthew “Pickles” Iwanusa of Caveman, and literally sounds like it could’ve come out at the height of New York City’s no wave/post-punk heyday and become an instant classic. The band has already drawn apt sonic comparisons to everyone from the Talking Heads and Berlin-era Bowie, to The Modern Lovers and Echo & The Bunnymen.
“Just Like Me” (SoundCloud), the third offering from The Fluids’ debut album No Kidding! that’s coming out on October 27th via Axis Mundi Records (vinyl pre-order). Following the album’s undeniable/frenzied lead single “Creatures” (buy/stream) and the addictive second single “Sign N’ Drive” (SoundCloud + Spotify), “Just Like Me” is a deliriously timeless track about unrequited lust, and the self-reflection that ensues when you realize no one’s looking back at you.
