Following on from last month’s ‘The Girls Are Fighting’ and 2021’s ‘Traps’, the latest song from Kele Okereke and co. combines hypnotic verses with a euphoric, soaring chorus. It’ll appear on the band’s sixth album ‘Alpha Games’, which is out on April 29.

Find your root/ Find your core/ Then go clear like the air in our lungs/ Ask the earth for resolve/ Ossify/ Like the marrow/ In our bones,” Okereke sings ahead of repeated chants of “earth earth air air fire fire water water“.
