Rob French keeps things fast and furious for Idles' titanic anthem Grounds, shot in an English town at dawn during lockdown.

Joe Talbot takes the wheel of his car and storms through the town's deserted streets, captured by French in a modest nod to Rendezvous, Claude Lelouch's classic race through early morning Paris.    

Frontman Joe Talbot says of “Grounds”: “We wanted to write a song that embodied self-belief, and gave us self-belief - a counter-punch to all the doubt we build up from all the noise we so easily let in. We wanted to make the sound of our own hearts’ marching band, armed with a jack hammer and a smile. We wanted to make the sound of our engine starting. So we did. Thank you."
