'Idle Hands' - single review

Doops new psych rock treat ‘Idle Hands’ is out today!


The band describe the track as dealing with ‘the theme of mistakes and how we are often drawn back again and again to the precipice of no return’, ‘seeking comfort in discomfort’.

The music mirrors that idea perfectly with a serene intro descending into a darker heavier sound. 

Brief lulls in intensity are well placed as it builds momentum further in glorious urgency.  The bass is particularly effective, adding to the racing pulse of the track.


Combined with the talented Spencer Withey on production and recording, ‘Idle Hands’ is a super strong opener for an EP due out later this year.  Whilst the single still has the signature sound of Doops, it feels like the four piece are now creating an even more expansive and dynamic sound.  

If you wanna catch Doops live they are playing two Reading shows this month before a summer break, so you better be quick!

The single 'Idle Hands' is out now and you can catch Doops live on 15th June at The Purple Turtle, Reading and on 30th June at The Oakford Social Club, Reading.
