IDLES present a pointedly unglamourous snapshot of their roots for A Hymn, from the Bristol band's forthcoming album Ultra Mono. It features each bandmember driving through hometown streets to the shops in the company of a parent.

Directed and edited by Ryan Gander, who set up remote cameras in each car, the recording of these mundane journeys in modern suburban Britain is distinctly undramatic, yet quietly heartwarming - a counterpoint to a characteristically heavyweight IDLES song. 

"A Hymn is a hymn that rejoices in the sinister flesh-eating virus of the pedestrian," says frontman Joe Talbot. "It sings the tune of normal's teeth sinking into your neck as you sleep stood up with your eyes open. Amen.”
