Idles (also spelled as IDLES) is a post-punk noise art band from Bristol, England that produces a powerful and unabashedly abrasive form of rock. They are a band that overtly expresses their passionate, from the instruments that typically perform on a manic overdrive to the lead singer Joe Talbot shouting his often aggressively political and often humorous lyrics with his signature hoarse voice. There are some post-punk elements to their music based on how the bass and the drums interact, and the textural nature of the guitars, but they also have a deeply punk-oriented side with Talbot's snarl, his bouncing-off-the-walls energy, as well as their overall harshness of the sound and the band's general attitude. Also Joy as an Act of Resistance, has got to be one of the better album titles that came along in recent years.
