New Band of The Day: The I.D
Share This Article:
The I.D stylise a new post-punk revival in a decade where the gentleman like genre is dying.
This is the combination of four European lads from Ireland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
The I.D have a C86 influence with a jangle pop focus, and all the post-punk aesthetics to be compared to Interpol, The Twilight Sad and Editors.
The Strokes and Interpol (among others) have failed to live up to expectations on their recent albums, now it’s time for something new.
Backed by the next big thing Savages, The I.D have the chance to follow suit and offer something else, while the experienced fall from grace.
Second single “Age Anti Age” shows how The I.D combine jangle pop with post-punk.
They lead listeners into a dark area, then switch It up with the chorus like the trained musicians they are.
Lead vocalist Leo Cosendai sings: “And his passion for youth ends in pretence,” / "I want to make up for the sobriety of my youth" / "And who cares if it’s wrong or right, because you’re getting older"There’s no denying, what “Age Anti Age” is all about, and The I.D’s follow-up EP isn’t far off the quality. Bloodsweat & Honour has four tracks, all of which are post-punk belters.
It was released with Gary Powell’s (drummer of The Libertines) Duchamp Records in October of last year.
The I.D have been absent from the music scene for a couple of months, more is expected from the London based quartet.
