Indie Rockers IDLEWILD Return With Eight Album – Here’s First Single ‘DREAM VARIATIONS’…

Brand new sonic impulses

8 February 2019

Scottish indie rockers IDLEWILD have been around for quite some time now. They’ will launch their new, eight, album INTERVIEW MUSIC on 5th April. Frontman Roddy Woomble says: “A lot of the songs are about dreams and dreaming and the thoughts and ideas that come from this state,” said frontman Roddy Woomble of the inspiration ‘Interview Music’. “I live in the Scottish Highlands, and between there and California you’ve got two locations that can put you in a dream like state – driving down Sunset Boulevard as the sun sets or driving over the remote Ardnamurchan peninsula as the sun rises. The world seems unreal, magical. You’re dreaming through a landscape.”

Here’s first single DREAM VARIATIONS. A harmonious, melodic pop rainbow…

Most furious outburst Nirvana never wrote…

This is a film about the future
It it the future of your life
You think it’s certain
But nothing is certain
No nothing is certain
But nothing is certain

IDLEWILD – Tempestuous Debut Longplayer ‘HOPE IS IMPORTANT’ Is 20 Today…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

19 October 2018

Band: IDLEWILD (Scotland)

Album: HOPE IS IMPORTANT – the band’s debut album

Released: 19 October 1998 – 20 years ago

TINY MIX TAPES wrote: “It’s one of those records that just grabs you, slowly becoming more and more infectious over time. The band wear their influences quite blatantly on their sleeves. The abstract lyrics and song titles combined with a distinct US garage rock sound at an R.E.M. influence, circa-Murmur. At times, however, Idlewild do manage to truly transcend their inspirations and create music which sounds truly original, specifically, the heart-warming strum-along of “I’m Happy To Be Here Tonight”, the ominous atmospherics of “Safe And Sound” and especially the devastating closer “Low Light”, which slowly builds up a feel of impending doom, eventually subsiding only for it to explode in an orgy of white noise which seems to go on for ages; pummeling the listener into a sweet submission.”
Full review here – Score 4.5/5

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: A tremendously boisterous debut album by a young explosive band who knew perfectly well how to turn punk injected eruptions into highly sticky bangers. From noisy havoc to big anthems and a couple of dreamy mid-tempo reflections in between. Top performance!
