Once again, IDLES show themselves to be a band willing to tackle the important subjects and turn it into moshpit gold.
They’re not messing about this lot. Just a week after ‘Colossus’, the first single from their second album ‘Joy As An Act Of Resistance’, left us all stunned, excited and waiting impatiently for more, IDLES have returned with a second absolute banger. ‘Danny Nedelko’ - named after the Heavy Lungs singer - is a storming pro-immigration call-to-arms with a chorus that is destined to crawl into your ears and stay there all year.
As fast-paced and misleadingly simple on the surface as The Ramones at their peak, behind the thundering guitars lie a call for unity (“He’s made of bones, he’s made of blood / He’s made of flesh, he’s made of love”). Once again, IDLES show themselves to be a band willing to tackle the important subjects and turn it into moshpit gold. We’ve never needed them more. Jamie MacMillan
