idleMob / Bio

idleMob is what happens when you grow up listening to heavy metal,but only had an acoustic guitar. Take a dark spin on CAROUSEL,watch the faces blur into a barrage of EMPTY BODIES.Follow the sounds of THE WHALE SONG to find you've been TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL, who waited till you were LISTENING to tell you TOMORROW'S TOO LATE to be PUSHING LIGHT.SEE YA

"idleMob’s self-titled album will remind you of Pink Floyd as well as Metallica. You’ll even get flashes of Pearl Jam, Neil Young, David Bowie, and Rusted Root if you listen carefully. But all these influences add up to a sound all indieMob’s own. And it’s a sound that demands the attention of both your ear and your brain. They balance the heavy darkness of “Empty Bodies” or “Carousel” with light and lifting acoustic guitars in the Led Zeppelin inspired “Pushing Light” and “Nadine,” the Glimour-influenced “Listening,” or the Adrian Belew-like gutiar of “The Whale Song.”

"The beauty of idleMob’s album is how it fuses so many diverse styles into a single narrative voice. And the music paints vivid, haunting pictures in your mind, like these from a video for “Touched By an Angel” (my favorite song of the album):"
