Bloc Party share new single "The Girls Are Fighting"

Bloc Party have shared their brand new single "The Girls Are Fighting", which is the second track lifted from their forthcoming sixth album "Alpha Games". Following its first play by Steve Lamacq on BBC Radio 6 Music the other night they've uploaded a video to accompany the track.

Kele says of the track: "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. 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 nought 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."
