Now Watching: IDLES – 'Never Fight A Man With A Perm'

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

IDLES have just unleashed the music video for their charged up track 'Never Fight A Man With A Perm', which appeared on their 2018 LP Joy As An Act Of Resistance. It's been busy times for the band, who recently played a trashing set at Glastonbury.

The retro arcade game inspired clip was created by the talented folks at Fluffer Records. According to them, they were drawn to the track's words that take a swipe at toxic masculinity. They said in a statement, that "Using a British take on the classic arcade beat ’em up platform game seemed like a cool way to put this across visually." The animated clip features trippy scenes of frontman Joe Talbot battling the men he sings about.
