If you were excited for WZRD’s lead single, I apologize. Because, really, exciting is the antonym for “Brake.” Actually, you know what Kid Cudi and Dot Da Genius’ new rock tune reminds me of? It’s like getting absolutely obliterated with all your friends, to the point where walking requires assistance, then stubbornly swatting away everyone trying to help. The song means well, but what’s on the surface just can’t pull it off.
The rest of the LP drops on Cudder’s born day, January 30, so hopefully they’ve found their footing by then.
