Declan McKenna returns with new single 'British Bombs'

Having been rather quiet since the release of his fantastic 2017 debut album 'What Do Think About The Car?', Declan McKenna has now returned with a brand new single.

The new track 'British Bombs' sees the frontman take on a rather politically-motivated angle on his return, and will donate proceeds of his latest release to anti-war charities.

Speaking about the new offering, McKenna said, "'British Bombs' is a tune I wrote about the hypocrisy of the British arms trade and the weapons convention in London. I think too often it’s implied that matters in the world are too complex to not end up with war, or to not possess and sell weapons, and I just think it is pure bullshit. Not only do we still engage in wars far away from our homes, which settle nothing and fuel extremism in the aftermath, we sell weapons to other countries full well knowing where they end up.

"I wanted to write a song that was outright against war, in any form. Violence breeds violence and I just don’t think the world is too complex to set a peaceful precedent, but it seems the business of war is what keeps happening. To say it’s a shame feels like a huge understatement."
