Indie/post-punk band The I.D stem from London and are set to release their debut single Age Anti Age on April 2 through Duchamp Records.
After being asked to perform at Gary Powell’s (Libertines) club earlier this month, The I.D are surely heading for big things.
Age Anti Age is similar in style, musically and vocally, to Interpol yet at times a glimpse of the Arctic Monkeys’ guitar work sneaks in. With a very catchy chorus of, “You can say we don’t think alike/And who cares if it’s wrong or right/Because you’re getting older…” and incredibly talented musicians, Age Anti Age is a fantastic sing-along indie single.
Age Anti Age has wonderfully deep and smooth vocals blended with great musicianship making it such an easy and enjoyable track to listen to. Vocally, there is something in this track that hints towards influences from Robert Smith (The Cure). The song itself focuses on the issues of age; the regrets of not grasping opportunities in your youth when you have the chance and hating age when it creeps up on you as you refuse to let it tell you you’re getting old. It tells the story of a man who wants to “make up for the sobriety” of his youth while the chorus screams out “…You’re getting older/and I’m growing younger”.
Age Anti Age has a story to tell with a good and interesting message with lyrics that slowly unravel the more you listen to it. Sometimes indie songs have little in the way of a message but this track is certainly different in that respect. It’s quite refreshing to hear indie music in this way.
The I.D release Age Anti Age on Monday 2 April through Duchamp Records. It will be available for free download and on iTunes.
