Speaking about the new track, vocalist Duncan Wallis explained in a statement:
The Tropigala seems like a fitting analogy for the cyclical resentment musicians sometimes harbour for the rest of the professional world’s lifestyles and aspirations (and vice versa); which can occasionally result in self-loathing and frustration.
“Despite its silly and deprecating nature, I actually find the lyrics in the bridge hook “there’s no words but they’re taking all my time” and “to save my life would it ever make you mine” to be some of my most concise in describing this feeling (or any other for that matter!). Feels good to get this off the chest!
Anna Prior from Metronomy provides extra backing vocals and ad libs on the track, and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank her deeply for her incomparably sublime vibes.
True Entertainment, the UK group’s first album in six years, arrives on March 10 via Memphis Industries.
