Idlewild have shared their new single ‘Same Things Twice‘ ahead of the release of eighth album Interview Music.
The single is everything you could want from Idlewild: catchy, energetic, and full of Rod Jones’ sensational guitar riffs.
Instrumentally, ‘Same Things Twice‘ is something of a throwback to the band’s early sound – think Hope Is Important or The Remote Part. There’s a sense of irony in the fact that after two decades in the game, the band are keeping things fresh by reinventing old motifs.
Frontman Roddy Woomble’s lyrics are more in line with the rambling storytelling style he has developed in more recent years, but he does allows himself to travel back twenty years with some snarled deliveries in the choruses.
