"...life is war"
Death Grips

Death Grips have posted new track 'Birds' online - listen to it below.

Death Grips are serious. Everything the group touch is imbued with a sense of purpose, an outrageous intensity which burns through ideas at an astonishing rate.

Parting company with Epic last year, 2013 has been something of a quiet year for the Sacramento collective. A few moments ago, though, Death Grips stirred into action with the release of a brand new track.

'Birds' is much more electronic in tone than previous material, with MC Ride's flow virtually the only connection to hip hop. The lyrics are simplistic but brutal, intoning: "One bird, two bird, three birds, four/ Five birds, six times life is war".
