SXSW Song Of The Day: Idles – Mother

One of the most memorable acts I caught at last year’s SXSW was Bristol band Idles. For the band’s final set of the week, they packed themselves onto the tiny stage at BD Riley’s and proceeded to blow all those in attendance away with a powerful performance. Political lyrics, heavy guitars, and a bit of a confrontational vibe all made for an exciting show that night, and so I was happy to see that the band would be returning for this year’s edition as one of the bands playing The British Music Embassy at Latitude 30.

The lineup for this years British Music Embassy has just been released and it features notables such as Gaz Coombes, Frank Turner, Pale Waves, Girl Ray, Goat Girl, and Jade Bird taking to the stage at Latitude 30 throughout the week with Idles closing out the night on Thursday, March 15 at 1:00am. It will be intense.

Check out the video for “Mother,” off of last year’s Brutalism, below:
