IDER (IDER)
“creeping, brooding synth-pop … they explore the darkest edges of love and human impulses” The FADER

“A subtle, refreshing twist on pop music.” Pigeons and Planes

With over two million streams on the board, IDER are moving into an exciting new phase with the release of their debut EP on Aesop today – a label renowned for launching a handful of the most forward-facing and celebrated electronic and pop artists of this decade, including SOHN and TALA. The record Gut Me Like An Animal features four entirely new compositions; including polished-pop lead single ‘Face On’, future live favourite ‘Nevermind’ (the gripping video for which premiered via Stereogum this week), the soaring ‘Does She Even Know’ and the EP’s beautifully fragile a’cappella title track – with The FADER praising IDER’s “tantalising” exploration of “the darkest edges of love and human impulses.”

IDER are Megan Markwick and Lily Somerville, two friends based in North London whose blend of soaring pop and delicate electronics took 2016 by storm. Emerging first with their smoky R&B tinted debut ‘Sorry’, IDER quickly enticed fans such as stellar songwriter and producer Shura and Radio 1’s Phil Taggart and Huw Stephens. The duo followed up ‘Sorry’ with a vulnerable, perfectly poised second cut called ‘Pulse’, drawing comparisons to London Grammar and FKA twigs.
The summer months came and went with IDER performing a handful of acclaimed support slots with Tegan and Sara amongst others whilst writing and recording new material. IDER capped a thrilling first year as a fully functioning band with the Eastern-influenced ‘King Ruby’ and the emotionally charged ‘Million’. Support rained in from Wonderland, DIY and The Line of Best Fit – and the pair bagged a “Track of the Week” from Huw Stephens in the process.
