Black Mambo is the second track on and first single from Glass Animals' debut album ZABA.
In a literal sense, the song is about a sloth and a mole facing off in a game of dominoes.
In a track-by-track, frontman Dave Bayley mentions that he thought of the song material while watching Breaking Bad.
In Breaking Bad, Walter White is constantly facing off against adversaries that he seems outmatched by. Though usually the underdog, he uses his intellect to achieve his goals. .
