Listen to Black Kids’ long-awaited comeback single, ‘Obligatory Drugs’

The band released their only album to date, 'Partie Traumatic', in 2008

Black Kids have shared their first new song in two years, ‘Obligatory Drugs’.

The Reggie Youngblood-fronted outfit came to prominence in 2008 with the singles ‘I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance with You’ and ‘Hurricane Jane’, both of which featured on their acclaimed debut album ‘Partie Traumatic’. This was sandwiched between two EPs: 2007’s ‘Wizard of Ahhhs’ and 2009’s ‘Cemetery Lips’.

After a prolonged period of silence, Black Kids have returned with a new song and music video. Directed by Kevin Snow, the video for ‘Obligatory Drugs’ sees Youngblood and his sister Ali Youngblood perform dance routines in a house.

Prior to today, the band’s last released song was the stand-alone 2014 single ‘Origami’. As Stereogum reports, their long-awaited sophomore album is finally due out next year.
