20 - Joseph Talbot - IDLES
Loss, Life and humanity. I talk to Joe from IDLES about what it means to be honest and have a human connection with his audience and how to stay in a place of raw honesty when writing. Joe is not afraid to say what he thinks and while he has insecurities just like everyone else, he is a master at embracing it.
IDLES are having a fantastic year. Selling out shows, a debut album and supporting Foof Fighters at the request of Dave Grohl can't be bad! Their body of work to date is thought provoking, aggressive yet kind, and at times - uncomfortable.
This band is truly unique, and after talking with Joe, it's not difficult to understand why.
