London based post-punk band The I.D have released their first double A-side single through Duchamp Records. Bloodsweat and Honour/Own Designed Love comes after the release of previous singles Age Anti Age and A Bigger Picture.
Bloodsweat and Honour is a great post-punk song filled with fantastic sing-a-long lyrics, those Robert Smith style vocals we all love and a brilliant rhythm and melody which makes it instantly likeable. The chorus, “So much for bloodsweat and honour, you’re caught up in the glamour” is bound to have you singing along after just the first listen.
Own Designed Love is another track which oozes everything that makes The I.D so good to listen to. The vocals are again spot on and have that ‘not bothered’ aspect to them, they sound so effortless which is what makes the songs easily accessible. With both of these tracks, from the first note you can distinguish that they belong to The I.D as they have such a unique tone to their music. Claiming that they share an acute interest for music made in the late 70s, The I.D know how to bring back that post-punk sound that was so good the first time around.
