Fresh off the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, ‘Understanding Electricity’, One Little Indian is proud to present Official Secrets Act’s brand new single, ‘Bloodsport’, out on June 15th on One Little Indian. Following two previous singles, ‘So Tomorrow’ and ‘Girl From The BBC’, ‘Bloodsport’ sees Official Secrets Act moving towards darker, more haunting territories. The song is influenced by drummer Alex McKenzie’s cycling accident two-months ago, as the band felt it necessary to reflect their mood, deciding it’s best to release something more evocative and brooding. While McKenzie has made a full recovery, he has spent the last eight weeks off the road, forcing the band to improvise and challenge themselves more. ‘Bloodsport’ epitomizes this. It is intense, reflective and quite possibly, the best song the band has recorded yet.
Already the band has been a Breaking Act with the Sunday Times, had a feature in NME and been lauded by press and radio alike, including Zane Lowe’s ‘Single of The Week’, Huw Stephens, Colin Murray, Lauren Laverne and featured interviews with The Sun, Daily Star and The Guardian.
is mixed by Liam Howe, and an exclusive remix by The Filthy Dukes. The band will support The Rakes on tour in April, and then hit the festival circuit with gigs at The Great Escape, Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Rockness and many others.
