Black Kids are back with “Obligatory Drugs” video

October 22, 2016 :: 04:29 PM EDT

Jacksonville, Florida-born band, Black Kids, are streaming a video for their new song “Obligatory Drugs”. The track is the first to be released from their new album, out in 2017.

Lead singer and guitarist Reggie Youngblood says of the track,

“Even though it’s a sort of outlier on the new record, it’s like most Black Kids songs in that it’s a genre experiment: What if Mark E. Smith had social-media anxiety and barked over a Specials track?”

The video was filmed by the band themselves in Jacksonville as well as in Portland and Brooklyn. Animation by artist Bjorn Miner is featured. Watch it below.
