Dutch Uncles enlist Anna Prior (Metronomy) for new single ‘Tropigala (2 to 5).’

Dutch Uncles have released their newest single from their upcoming sixth album. The track, ‘Tropigala (2 to 5),’ is a danceable new song that features backing vocals from Metronomy’s Anna Prior.

Vocalist/lyricist Duncan Wallis discussed the lyrical inspiration behind the new single:

“The Tropigala seems like a fitting analogy for the cyclical resentment musicians sometimes harbour for the rest of the professional world’s lifestyles and aspirations (and vice versa); which can occasionally result in self-loathing and frustration.”

He adds:

“Despite its silly and deprecating nature, I actually find the lyrics in the bridge hook “there’s no words but they’re taking all my time” and “to save my life would it ever make you mine” to be some of my most concise in describing this feeling (or any other for that matter!). Feels good to get this off the chest!”

Dutch Uncles’ new album True Entertainment is out March 10th via Memphis Industries. New single ‘Tropigala (2 to 5)’ is out now. Dutch Uncles tour the UK in March/April 2023.
