As for Idles’ ‘Kill Them with Kindness‘, that track begins with a lovely piano instrumental intro, only to morph quickly into a massive indie rock anthem that is a glory to listen to.

No wonder the Peaky Blinders music supervisor liked it so much, eh?

Kill Them with Kindness‘ also came with an official black and white animated music video that is as quirky and cool as the song.
