IDLES
At a point of uncertainty, IDLES bring you concise carnage. At a time of lies, IDLES bring you honesty.
At a time of body shaming and Photoshop, IDLES bring you a visceral barrage of joyous bile.
At a time of The Kardashians, IDLES bring you a story of working hard for what and who you love.
In a time of polarised politics and murky waters; IDLES and bands like them are needed to remind
people that it's ok to dance and laugh and sing in the face of adversity.

Fontaines D.C.
Fontaines D.C. met as a quintet in Dublin, influenced and driven in equal measure by the rich history of their hometown’s counter-culture, their response has been to make concise and immediately authentic indie-punk that has done anything but fall on deaf ears. On their new AA Side Single ‘Chequeless Reckless/ Boys In The Better Land” the band have decided to delve even deeper into their influences (which they personally cite as spanning from The La’s, to The Pogues to Buddy Holly) employing hypnotic, kraut-rock infused cyclical riffs, whilst channelling Dublin into their concise and often-unassumingly poetic lyrics with a distinctive gritty Irish drawl.

“Snarling, Swaggering Post Punk” Stereogum

“The energy, the urgency and the emotion of these brilliant new songs made me stand up and take notice that this is the band I’ve been waiting for” KEXP

“I’m absolutely kicking myself for not seeing these live” Steve Lamacq, BBC 6 Music
