The UK public has been all a-twitter about the new LP from afropunky, dance-rocky outfit Bloc Party. Seriously, frontman Kele Okereke has been trending globally and being feted as the “sexiest man in indie rock.” Songs like “Octopus”–featured in this brand new video–don’t hurt either, with their infectious but hard-edged rhythms. “Octopus” will be released as a digital single tomorrow and then gets pressed on to 7″ vinyl on August 13th (b/w “Straight Thru Cru”). Bloc Party’s much anticipated full-length Four will drop shortly after on August 21st (in the US–Aug. 20 in the UK).
