IDLES, like all bands in the UK at the moment, haven’t been able to play live for over a year now – so the pedalboard Kiernan discusses is definitely rigged to be a studio tool rather than a live setup. This is evidenced by the fact that it’s about the size of a small moon (or large spaceship), and is packed full of experimental pedals set in an experimental order.
Some of the sounds are less new and experimental, however, with Kiernan demonstrating some of the stranger tones found on the band’s discography.
