NME reviewed ‘Tangk’ when it was released last February, calling it “the most open-hearted we’ve ever seen them” in a four star review. “The record ends not on a scream but on the peaceful and jazzy full stop of ‘Monolith’ as the frontman serenely concludes: “I found myself my own king, I took his crown, I took his rings”.

“Removing our fat-fingered monarch’s jewels isn’t as much a ‘fuck you’ to the establishment here as realising that without self-worth and a little gratitude, you’re nothing. Anger is an energy, but love is the answer, they pose.”

We also caught up with frontman Joe Talbot for an extended In Conversation chat about the making of ‘Tangk’ and its approach to love: “I’m interested in showing the different facets of love that are not so conventional, but are very fucking important: empathy, patience, honesty, communion, hard work, recovery, forgiveness. That’s what I wrote about.

“I’m still there. I’m still going to need to go through it, and I’m still very much interested in writing about love forevermore. I find it fascinating and empowering.”

In other news, IDLES have spoken out about whether they could potentially headline Glastonbury in the future.
