The chilled out sound sits somewhere between Allen’s earlier work and a restrained M.I.A., especially on the subdued gun cocks in the chorus. “That’s why I can’t hang with the cool gang/ Everyone’s a trigger bang bang bang bang bang,” she sings on the hook, waving off the toxic presences in her life. “Goodbye bad bones, I’ve got bigger plans/ Don’t wanna put myself in your hands.” Take a listen below.
Earlier this year, Allen teased another new track called “Family Man”. It’s possible both that song and “Trigger Bang” are advanced listens from her forthcoming new record, reportedly titled The Fourth Wall and made in collaboration with Mark Ronson.
