IDLES is a lightning bolt shooting straight out of Bristol, England, and tearing through the mess of a world we’re all currently suffering through, guiding the masses with a grin and a fist while dancing and shouting and leading a charge for what’s honest and true. If that sounds a bit heavy-handed or perhaps too optimistic, maybe it is, but IDLES isn’t afraid to give the effort 1000%. This quintet makes a huge, permanent impression on any audience, suspecting or otherwise, instantly converting even the most skeptical out there into totally devout supporters with their cathartic post-punk and conviction. The band let it rip in the live room at Serious Business Music in Brooklyn before making their way to Austin for SXSW. BRUTALISM is available now from Partisan Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
