State Of You Release New Single, ‘Bloody Party’

UK rock’n’roll upstarts State Of You have released a final taster of their self-titled debut EP, which is set for release this Friday. “’Blood Party’ came together very quickly and is a straight up party anthem,” says vocalist Steve Sitkowski. “It’s about wanting to get involved in life, to get hurt by it and to just accept the experience. I believe we only live once so now’s the time to listen to yourself and do whatever it is you want to do. Nick and I were working on the lyrics until 3AM on the day we recorded it. We were staying in a house we rented for the band and were both whisper-screaming lyrics to the instrumental demo playing when Max walked in. We both instantly apologised to him thinking we had woken him up but he just wanted some water. I thought we were in trouble at first, like two kids staying up late at a sleepover.” 

This new cut follows the release of State Of You’s massively entertaining music video for ‘The Perfect Storm’ where band members’ old lady alter egos embark upon a tea party with a difference. The song itself does explore a serious issue as Sitkowski explains it’s “about living with undiagnosed ADHD for most of my life and the destructive relationships I’ve been in because of that. I was constantly using drugs to get away from myself and being in a dark place most of the time – That feeling of not belonging, being incapable of functioning in the real world and not being able to figure out why.”
