Idles - Ultra Mono

by Idles


'Ultra Mono' Recorded in Paris and produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Arcade Fire) and Adam ‘Atom’ Greenspan (Anna Calvi, Cut Copy), with Kenny Beats (FKA Twigs, DaBaby, Vince Staples) providing additional programming, ‘Ultra Mono’ was sonically constructed to capture the feeling of a hip-hop record. Across all twelve brutally relevant tracks, the band double down on the vitriolic sneer and blunt social commentary of their past work, with themes of active presence, inclusivity, class, gender inequality, nationalism, community, and toxic masculinity remaining ever-present.‘Ultra Mono’ also features guest vocals from Jehnny Beth(Savages), and additional guest contributions from Warren Ellis (Nic Cave and the Bad Seeds), David Yow, and Jamie Cullum.
