Manchester indie risers Idle Hours announce debut EP ‘The Fourth Wall’, set for release August 19th, and share intoxicating new cut ‘Televangelist’.
Following on from motorik-infused, jangle-pop lead single ‘Souvenirs’, Idle Hours’ quizzical and assuring social commentary comes to the fore once again in second EP reveal ‘Televangelist’. Heavily influenced by the likes of Blur and Ulrika Spacek, the band’s garage rock sensibilities have already culminated in slots alongside acts including The Lounge Society, Keg, The Rillsand Silverbacks, with several of their own sold-out hometown shows ticked off, and further live dates lined up to coincide with their summer EP release.
Speaking ahead of their latest single release, frontman Jack Waldron revealed: “The song was born out of a short-lived fascination with the American Televangelism industry, fuelled by late night attempts to escape the YouTube hole – often unsuccessful. The greed, narcissism and exploitation surrounding Televangelism felt like a very interesting subject to write about”.
