WATCH: BLACKSTARKIDS Releases “FRANKIE MUNIZ” song & video

Kansas City-based indie trio BLACKSTARKIDS have released “FRANKIE MUNIZ” – their second single from the forthcoming new full-length Whatever, Man (out October 22 via Dirty Hit.

From the press release:

BLACKSTARKIDS’ shimmering Gen-Z anthems have prompted international praise from Rolling Stone France, The Line Of Best Fit and DIY in the U.K., Coup De Main in Australia, Alternative Press here in the United States, and the support of Venezuelan DJ and producer, Arca. Their blissful DIY sound, which blends garage rock with synthpunk, and hip hop, rides a wave of influences, including Outkast, Smashing Pumpkins, Odd Future, and Weezer, to usher in a new wave of indie. By seamlessly creating an intersection of topical and timely nostalgia and currently relevant pop culture references that highlight both their depth as musicians and witty personalities, BLACKSTARKIDS have garnered comparisons to Brockhampton and Bloc Party and been called a “90’s baby literacy test” by Earmilk.

We’re still trying to figure out what the song has to do with Frankie Muniz, the former child actor from Malcolm in the Middle. Check out the lyrics here:

Wassup, oh my, you’re on my mind
Wassup, oh my you’re on my mind, again
Wore this pink tracksuit for you
Man this Baby Phat is so cute
I walk past trying to catch your view
I saw you look but played it off cool
I’m just hoping that you call me
You been all on my mind lately
I’m missing all the vibes and time that you gave me
I just need one night, so you please come and save me
I just wanna know what you’re up to
If I dial number would you pull up you come through
If I hit up yah phone with a text would it send through
I hope I’m not blocked on the gram I DM’d you
Teenage heartthrob, Giving me all heart problems
Teenage heartthrob, Giving me all heart problems

I fell in love with every little thing about you
You broke my heart in the summer, what am I supposed to do?

I freaked out just a little bit
Cause I forget
What I’m even waking up for
I’m over it
I feel like Frankie
I’m trying hard to forget you
When everything was just simple
I hate the fact that I miss you
Might dye my hair pink, cause you dyed yours grey
Just a couple kids trying to dye our problems away
In attempt to hide the fact that we’re scared of the change
But I’d be lying if I didn’t take a second to say
That you can call me if you need me I’ll be there
I’m trying to drive around, wind blowing through your hair
And even if your friends hate me now I don’t care
We can play our music loud, if they see us let em stare

I fell in love with every little thing about you
You broke my heart in the summer, what am I supposed to do?

You don’t call no more
So I don’t check my phone.
