An exclusive first listen (in progressive streaming format, formatphiles!) to the new, new Fight Like Apes single ‘Something Global’ which is released on July 13th for digital download and on limited edition CD of 1500 numbered copies on July 18th. The single will also feature ‘Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues’, (a Mclusky cover) and ‘Knucklehead’ and is taken from the forthcoming untitled album due on September 26th on Model Citizen which was recorded in Seattle in May with John Goodmanson (producer of Death Cab For Cutie, Bikini Kill, Pavement) and the artwork is by the one and only Loreana Rushe.
So what of the song? ‘Something Global’ is a 3 minute stomper. Flapes version 1.1, just tweaked to sound cleaner and shinier but with a large menacing bite safely intact. A barrage of wailing, rushing synths ride along a bolting beat. May Kay is in fine form ordering someone to “Give me my hook!” as if she is threatening to take a blade to the curtain of fashionable bullshit. The Ape invasion starts here…[MEDIA=1]
