IDLES Share Hilarious Video For ‘Stendhal Syndrome’


By Kieran Webber

One of my favorite bands at the moment and arguably one of the most exciting and important bands of the past decade IDLES have shared the brilliantly hillarious video for ‘Stendhal Syndrome’, taken from their forthcoming debut LP ‘Brutalism’ which will be available March 10th.

The video for the energetic punk belter see’s the bands bassist Dev frolicking and galavanting around a variety of galleries. Commenting on the video Dev says:

“Armed with our secret weapon, (a lovely and excessively tall Belgian man called Ben) both Lee and I set about the galleries of London and proceeded to film me pissing about in front of a total of 91 pieces of art. Gin was needed. All moves featured are choreographed by myself under the guidance of the director/singer/artiste extraordinaire Joseph Talbot. I am available for dance lessons if anyone is interested.”
