100 gecs have released Doritos & Fritos, the second single from their upcoming album 10000 gecs. If you're a fan of corn chips, then this one's for you. The fuzzed-out, ska-inspired track is driven along by a hypnotic bass line, and it's one of the bounciest moments in 100 gecs' discography to date.
The song's title, Doritos & Fritos, looks like it's a reference to the legendary rapper MF DOOM, who rapped on 2004 track Accordion "That's why he bring his own needles/And get more cheese than Doritos, Cheetos or Fritos". The cover art also appears to be a reference to DOOM's mask, with a fork used to pay homage to the late MC's iconic headwear.
It's a bit of a departure from the band's hyperpop sound, but it's still as hectic as ever, while further exploring the band's ability to translate past trends into music that sounds utterly futuristic. The phrase "Doritos & Fritos" is 100% going to get stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
Doritos & Fritos follows on from last year's mememe, which featured glitchy production and a drumbeat that matches the intensity of everything else going on in the track. 100 gecs aren't afraid to bring together a myriad of musical elements and slot them into the one track. Their music is controlled chaos at its finest.
While there's no release date for 10000 gecs yet, the band wrote on YouTube "10000 soon". In the meantime, you can check out Doritos & Fritos below. Turn it up loud and clear your schedule for a little while. It's time to let the gecs in your head run wild.
