Listen IDLES share new track ‘Mercedes Marxist’

IDLES by Pooneh Ghana

The Bristol band have shared their first new material since last year’s ‘Joy As An Act Of Resistance’.

Despite being in the middle of a rather hefty world tour, IDLES have shared a brand new track.

The Bristol quintet, who recently played a residency at London’s Electric Ballroom, have now offered up ‘Mercedes Marxist’, a track recorded during sessions for last year’s ‘Joy As An Act Of Resistance’.

A suitably raucous affair, it channels the similar adrenaline-driven spirit of their most recent album. The track’s also set to be released as a physical 7” on 2nd August, alongside another new track, ‘I Dream Gullioutine’.

Listen to ‘Mercedes Marxist’ below.
