Bloc Party – Octopus

When I was about fifteen I used to love Bloc Party, but then I lost interest in them when they started experimenting with autotune. This new song of theirs is brilliant, though – it really sounds as though they’ve returned to form with this decent bit of jerky guitar pop. And yeah, I’m well aware that it’s not actually that new by this point, but someone put it on over the weekend and I hadn’t heard it yet. Chill out, yeah? It’s not like I think I’m John fucking Peel.

I hope the new album delivers. I’ll be seriously disappointed if it turns out this song is just an anomalous stand out track.
