Introducing…IDLES

In times of apathy and half-hearted music, IDLES’ motorik is geared towards sweat. Apathy, half-heartedness and inertia? Fold. Excitement, devotion and chaos? All in. From their first EP Welcome (2012) to their debut album Brutalism, this five-piece band has firmly established itself in a brand of sharp English irony and guitars that reject the post-punk label and venture into the realms of grime and nocturnal revolution. Brutal honesty to laugh in the adversary’s face, to pogo until you lose your phone crushing underfoot… because we all know the only good phone is a smashed one. Tonight they will play at La2 Apolo.
