Bloc Party release new track ‘The Girls Are Fighting’

It’s the second track taken from their new album ‘Alpha Games’.

Ahead of the release of their sixth studio album ‘Alpha Games’ on 29th April via Infectious / BMG, Bloc Party are sharing their newest single ‘The Girls Are Fighting’. “There was no specific incident that inspired this song – it was more a composite of lots of things I’ve seen over the years when being in clubs and seeing violence erupt with feuding love rivals,” Kele Okereke explains. “I’ve always had a slight obsession with those sorts of moments; like a fuse being lit, when actions turn from words into violence. You can learn a lot about who people really are in those moments. I think ‘The Girls Are Fighting’ is kind of self-explanatory – someone’s been selling dreams to someone they shouldn’t have and it’s caught up with them. I just wanted to capture that moment of going from naught to ten in an evening, in a sweaty nightclub. I’m really pleased with the arrangement for this track because it has this 1970s glam rock feel meets Adam Ant feel. I love what Louise is doing on the tom toms.” Check it out below. ‘Alpha Games’ Tracklisting: 1. Day Drinker 2. Traps 3. You Should Know the Truth 4. Callum Is a Snake 5. Rough Justice 6.
