Having been bumped into the media spotlight last year with their second album, Joy As An Act Of Resistance, IDLES have once again taken to the road on a run of sold-out UK shows. Arriving in London for the first of three shows at London’s Electric Ballroom, the Bristol five-piece showed us they mean business. Bringing one of their signature shows, IDLES cemented the fact that they might just be one of Britain’s most exciting live acts. We headed along to capture night one of three as IDLES took on London.
