Daily electricity to load your batteries

Their merciless all motors hurly-burly with inexhaustive frontman
Alex Edkins at the wheels made me and my ears an instant fan.
Alex Edkins (frontman) about working with Idles’ sharp-teethed voice Joe Talbot:
“‘Come On Down’ was originally recorded during the Atlas Vending sessions but never fully finished. During the pandemic I really gravitated towards the idea of collaboration as a way
to fill the void left by the loss of live music. I reached out to friends from far and wide in
order to get that feeling of community that gigs provide. Joe Talbot is a longtime friend who METZ has shared the stage with many, many times, and this song was a very natural and
fun way to catch up with him and do something positive with our time off the road.
Joe Talbot: “METZ have been a band we’ve looked up to since they came into our lives
and made things better. I will never forget the first time I saw them or any of the other
times. Allowing me to sing with them is a gift and I hope you like it. I love it and I love
them. Long live METZ.”
Talbot has, like Edkins four lungs and you know that his band Idles
also produces hair-raising hullabaloo. Perfect match in noise hell.
