on Jul 13, 12 • by • with No Comments

Bloc Party was one of the first bands I got into when I discovered Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1’s show in 2006. The synth-fueled edge was somewhere between Brit rock and new wave and Kele’s voice was instantly recognizable. Its been 5 years since the London act reeled me in with A Weekend In The City and on August 20th, the aptly titled album Four will be released. The first single “Octopus” continues Bloc Party‘s penchant for combining electronic and rock elements, but the frenetic guitar leads the way while Kele turns up the angst.

Besides the original, the always reliable RAC adds some funky drums, paced synth, slinky guitar and relaxes the tempo on the remix. Choose your own adventure.
