Bloc Party recently announced their first new album in four years, the fittingly titled ‘FOUR’, the news being greeted with a flurry of excited anticipation across the board.
The first single from the album has been confirmed as ‘Octopus‘. It will be available to download from today (July 11th) and then on limited 7” backed by ‘Straight Thru Cru’ on August 13th, or you can watch the video here:
It hits the ground running with a blast of instantly recognizable nervous energy, the bands signature angular guitar interplay and driving rhythm section coupled with Kele’s dynamic vocal, equal parts seductive and urgent, making for a decisively enticing first taste of the album.
‘FOUR’ is released August 20 via Frenchkiss Records.
