IDLES - Brutalism
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
In a time of polarised politics and murky waters; IDLES and bands like them are needed to remind people that it's ok to dance and laugh and sing in the face of adversity. Bristol’s finest post-punk polemics IDLES have been promising to do great things for some time now, and with their debut album Brutalism they absolutely fulfill that promise, and a furious promise at that.
Politically charged, refreshingly confrontational and infectiously volatile, IDLES are a band like no other. Bringing the unsettling reality of the world we live in into their frantic assault on the senses, they are a band that until now could only be truly understood by witnessing in a live environment - but with Brutalism it surely feels like they have captured the intensity of that live sound. Bottled up here are the abrasive, memorable lyrics of Joseph Talbot delivered with all of the spite and wry humor he puts across on the stage.
The album features three singles: "Mother", "Divide & Conquer" and "Well Done".
