Locked down – but not Idle

I’ve been writing this blog for several years and added an accompanying podcast last autumn.

And it was the podcast which started to bring See You Down The Front to a wider audience – particularly other podcasters, broadcasters, labels and bands themselves.

And we were delighted (it’s we now because the podcast means SYDTF is no longer a one fan band) when Idle Lies got in touch to share their latest offering.

It’s the fourth single for a band who are starting to mature nicely and who have defied the problems caused by prolonged lockdown periods to keep writing and have released Two’s A Crowd to showcase their distanced efforts.

It’s an intriguing slice of stripped back indie built around a snaking guitar line, and with a couple of unexpected departures from the norm along its four minutes playing time.

It’s all too easy to tread a well worn path, but Idle Lies have managed to give the cliches a swerve to come up with something that’s at once easily familiar but also pleasingly different at the same time. Not an easy circle to square that.
