Lassamie Prasimay - 24th July 2018

Taking it’s cues from themes explored in Idles’ second record, Will Hooper's video for the Bristol band's Colossus is a brooding response to being overwhelmed - by maintenance, by connecting, by solitude. Overwhelmed to the point where you become entirely consumed in a moment.

It's slow-burning, it's witty, and most importantly, it has charismatic Idles frontman Joe Talbot's fearsome performance within a series of inner spaces, just big enough to contain his head.

It's living proof of the old punk adage that anger is an energy. And don't be fooled by the fake ending.
