Bloc Party – Octopus


After last weeks leak of Bloc Party’s first single ‘Octopus’ from their hotly anticipated fourth album Four, excitement for the new record rose higher than ever before, as many fans championed the bands return to a sound similar to their debut album Silent Alarm. Gone are Kele Okereke’s 128bpm dreams, its the return to more frantic guitars and machine gun drumming.

You can check out the Nova Dando directed video above, which is a rapid flash of images, mixed with flowing ribbons and a carry over obsession from Kele’s solo career – bad dancing in front of a green screen.

The song is available digitally tomorrow, and on 7″ from August 13, which include the B-side “Straight Thru Cru”. For more info check out
