IDLES Fabricated Video Clip For Flabbergasting Track ‘STOCKHOLM SYNDROME’ From Latest Album

6 August 2022

Last year Bristol‘s punk force IDLES shared their 4th LP, named Crawler.

For the flabbergasting track STOCKHOLM SYNDROME
the band fabricated a new video clip.

Lee Kiernan (guitarist): “The initial idea of the video was to try and visualise the monotony hell of having to work to survive and how the ‘machine’ eventually engulfs you and strips you of your freedoms. But we wanted to achieve this in a metaphorical way that kept the meaning as open as possible. So it becomes rather a visual representation that can be read in many different ways.”

explained.

The accompanying video clip contains fragments of…

Lots of artists had a lot of time on their hands as tours were canceled during the COVID-19 pandemic and started writing/producing new music. So did Bristol punks Idles. The new LP is a follow-up to Ultra Mono, their first No 1 album in the UK, released 12 months ago.

Lead single: THE BEACHLAND BALLROOM
An honest-to-goodness soul song named after the iconic Ohio venue.
