Warnings/Promises is the band's first album to be written with a new lineup featuring bassist Gavin Fox and longtime touring guitarist Allan Stewart, and its songs, although clearly coming from Idlewild, have become broader, richer and more ambitious.
From widescreen opener "Love Steals Us From Loneliness," Idlewild announce their new sound with a thick crunch of melancholic harmonies and folk melody spun over deeply intertwined guitars. What follows mixes arty blare, bittersweet pop and the raw embers of Americana - sometimes within a single song.
