  • Description

    2018/ 19 has to have been the year that this incredibly innovative and important band cemented their presence in the mind sets of all of us in terms of new music emerging through the UK and European Indie scene. I their a more honest and energetic rock band releasing music today? Maybe. But these boys have to be at the front of everyone’s thinking.

    Following 'Brutalism' (2017) and 'Joy as an Act of Resistance' (2018), two releases that garnered global critical acclaim, Idles return with their highly anticipated third album - 'Ultra Mono'. Sonically constructed to capture the feeling of a hip-hop record (including production contribution from Kenny Beats), the album doubles down on the vitriolic sneer and blunt social commentary of their past work. Not far beneath the surface of their self-admitted sloganeering lies a deeply complex and brutally relevant album that chews up cliches and spits them out as high art for the masses. This is momentary acceptance of the self. This is 'Ultra Mono'. This limited deluxe edition features a 28-page debossed 'Ultra Mono' catalogue.
