New Single by IDLES is As Epic As You’d Expect


For a minute we’ve sung the praises of British five piece IDLES. Between raucous live sets and releases that stick to your intense loving core, they’re one of our favorite bands to come out in the last decade. While we still jam their last full length studio album Joy As An Act of Resistance, their new single “Mr. Motivator” proves you can’t slow the band down.

With the band’s searing guitars and thunderous drums, the song quickly builds way for the bass and vocals to lead the way. The high energy and dark undercurrent of the song gives a chance for the words to make the difference between what you notice and what you don’t. Like all songs from the Bristol group, the energy and squeals are what stay with you. The video, featuring people working out in quarantine seems to fit with the band’s quirky side.

The video can be seen above or on YouTube. The song is ready to stream on all streaming sites or to purchase from Partisan Records via download.
