Bristol band IDLES has dropped a new single titled “GROUNDS” alongside accompanying visuals. The track is a cut off the band’s upcoming LP Ultra Mono, which also comes with the band’s previously released track “Mr. Motivator.”
Measuring at approximately three minutes and a half, the music video starts off with a calming montage of aspect shots covering various parts of a suburban neighborhood. Lead singer Joe Talbot climbs into his car and starts the engine, jump-starting the song’s blaring entrance with a blast of drums and snarling guitar riffs. A camera is placed near the car’s front bumper, mirroring the charged-up rhythm of the song. Backed behind aggressively distorted instrumentals, Talbot chants political lyrics like “No Hallelujahs and no kingdom comes” and “Do you hear the thunder? / That’s the sound of strength in numbers” throughout the song, building up to a crashing finish.
