Faintest Idea started out as an angry punk band. Using their own blend of street punk with horns as a constructive release for their politics, they relentlessly toured up and down the country. Over time their two tone ska and reggae influences started to come through to create their own blend of ‘Rude Boy Street Punk'.
With free market capitalism still rampant things don’t look too great for the younger generation but Faintest Idea bring the sound of people trying to keep hope in a seemingly bleak future. Throughout their music, lyrics tackle current global issues such as ecological destruction, failures of capitalism, futility of voting and the rising problems in mental health.
