The group of musicians currently holding the premium position amongst crowd surfers and circle pit enthusiasts on the British Isles, a spot normally reserved for bands born out of punk or metal, plays neither. The five-piece Bristol band known as IDLES is undeniably a part of the British lineage of aggressive pummelling shout-along noise-rock, they just adhere to different labels: in the post-everything reality we live in, IDLES are closer to post-punk than anything else, trading sensitivity and introspection with grisly aggression and propulsive rhythms. IDLES are coming to Stockholm and Lollapalooza 2022 next summer.
