IDLES have shared a new song – “Mercedes Marxist” – pulled from the sessions for their latest LP ‘Joy as an Act of Resistance.’.
“Mercedes Marxist was a strange beast for us, after Rottweiler, it was the first song we wrote for Joy as an Act of Resistance. I was pissed off at what I was and where I was: I was sofa surfing on the weekends and spending the weeks looking after my mum. My life balance was way off and this song reflects just how useless I felt. It was me at my worst and without any buoyancy it became catharsis. It was the last splurge from Brutalism so we omitted it. I like it now”
Mercedes Marxist’ released on Partisan Records is available to stream & download now or pre-order the 7″ .
