IDLES have released a music video for "Stockholm Syndrome" off their latest album, last year's Crawler (order on vinyl). The surreal and macabre video was directed by Charlotte Gosch and IDLES guitarist Lee Kiernan, who explain:

The initial idea of the video was to try and visualise the monotony hell of having to work to survive and how the "machine" eventually engulfs you and strips you of your freedoms. But we wanted to achieve this in a metaphorical way that kept the meaning as open as possible. So it becomes rather a visual representation that can be read in many different ways.

Watch the video below.

IDLES just played Lollapalooza (and an aftershow), and the North American leg of their tour resumes later this month and continues through September, including a set at Pasadena festival This Ain't No Picnic, and a Brooklyn show on September 15 at Kings Theatre, with support from Injury Reserve. See all dates below.
