IDLES Release Video For New Single 'Gift Horse'
A new year comes around and IDLES are already ramping up anticipation for the 16th February release of their new album ‘TANGK’, plus the major UK tour that will follow it.
And now the band have unveiled the new single “Gift Horse”.
The track continues to showcase the band’s ever-growing ambition with the new record, which has already been previewed by the mantric euphoria of “Dancer” and the soulful slowburner “Grace”.
“Gift Horse” ups the intensity from the album’s previous singles, its lean, taut intensity balanced by an undercurrent of gristly grooves and stuttering, charismatic delivery from the always thought-provoking Joe Talbot. Yet for all its sinewy menace, it’s sensitive too: a testament to redemption, to finding something or someone that makes the worries of the world feel not just tolerable but motivating. Collectively ‘TANGK’ celebrates love, communion and all of those powerful emotions that make existence worthwhile and “Gift Horse” is firmly in that lineage, declaring“All is love and love is all.”
Speaking about the track, Joe says:
“Look at us go! Music and movement for you and yours. Be bold and ride us like the disco donkeys we are. Or at least watch our video.”
