At a point of uncertainty, IDLES bring you concise carnage.

At a time of lies, IDLES bringyou honesty.

At a time of body-shaming and Photoshop, IDLES bring you a visceral barrage of joyous bile.

At a time of The Kardashians, IDLES bring you a story of working hard for what and who you love.

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.

Plus their songs are really good.
