Idlewild - ‘Live In A Hiding Place’ (Parlophone)
30 Dec 2003
winsome, third tune from breakthru, third album; release - '02.
It's testimony to the 'Wild's recently-acquired songwriting prowess that even this, the third single to be released from their excellent 'The Remote Part' LP, is a lesson in heart-warming, articulate indie-rock.
In equal parts heart-breaking and life-affirming, 'Live in A Hiding Place' sees frontman Roddy Woomble simultaneously at his most poetic and romantic; watch them soar this winter even higher than before. Just a shame about bassist Bob Fairfoull leaving, mind.
