Bristol’s Pitbull Punks IDLES Drop New Pounding Punch ‘MERCEDES MARXIST’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

7 May 2019

After becoming massively famous with the release of last’ year’s second album Joy As An Act Of Resistance and touring the world right now Bristol‘s pit bull punks IDLES still found some time to drop a brand new smack called ‘MERCEDES MARXIST‘. Another characteristic power punch for all pogo fanatics out there. A hitting hammer, both maniacally muscular and madly melodic.

Singer Joe Talbot said in a press statement: “You can see the progression and regression in some ways. It’s us, but a year older. We got bored of certain things and excited by others. We want to write more techno, we want to write more noise, we want to write more pop, and we want to write more country. We’ll just write it until it sounds like something we love, then we’ll put the words on top.”
