Bristol’s dark and brooding post-punk outfit, Cruelty, were handpicked by Idles to play the afterparty for their hometown show back in October. This is even more impressive when we consider if was only the bands second live outing. Their debut single ‘Disgraced’ was released late last year. The track is a vicious aural attack created through an incessant guitar / synthesizer combination, both fighting for dominance over pained wails creating an aura of fear, loss and despair. A journey into intensity and discomfort the song explores the relationship between mental health and romantic love.
