Over the weekend, IDLES performed on one of many principal levels at Lollapalooza, enjoying a sometimes roaring set. At the moment, the British post-punk band shared a brand new video for “Stockholm Syndrome.”It options selfmade masks, dancers and references to Gus Van Sant’s polarizing 2003 movie Gerry.
“Stockholm Syndrome” begins with a reverb-heavy, driving bass line earlier than descending into hardcore, surf-rock-style insanity. Over the propulsive instrumentals, lead singer Joe Talbot roars deeply summary lyrics about energy and morality.
The video for “Stockholm Syndrome” matches the paradox of the that means behind these lyrics.
“The preliminary thought of the video was to attempt to visualise the monotony hell of getting to work to outlive and the way the ‘machine’ ultimately engulfs you and strips you of your freedoms,” director Charlotte Gosch and IDLES guitarist Lee Kiernan stated in an announcement. “However we needed to realize this in a metaphorical method that saved the that means as open as attainable. So it turns into relatively a visible illustration that may be learn in many various methods.”
The music is off of Crawler, which was launched final November. The album was produced by the band’s Mark Bowen and Kenny Beats.
IDLES will kick off their North American tour on Aug. 27 in Pasadena with a set on the This Ain’t No Picnic Pageant. The short run wraps up on Sept. 17 with a present at Roadrunner in Boston.
