Idlewild is a Scottish rock band that was formed in Edinburgh in 1995. Its characteristic sound was faster and more dissonant than many of the band's 1990s indie rock contemporaries and Idlewild somehow managed to develope over time and from an edgy, angular sound that's akin to melodic hard rock. While the band's everchanging sound can't be easily placed into a specific genre, the band have clearly been influenced by the likes of: Gang of Four, Pavement, R.E.M., Blur and Fugazi.
