Bloc Party's Kele Releasing "Trick"
Fri, 08 Aug 2014 15:23:08
Time to turn "tricks" with Bloc Party frontman Kele, who is bringing it with a solo effort.
With first solo effort The Boxer, Kele, best known for his work as the frontman of acclaimed rock band Bloc Party, swapped out the angular guitars of his band and headed straight to the dancefloor, producing a shimmering triumph of an album which melded influences as disparate and surprising as two-step, Italo-house and old school garage with seamless ease.
Trick, his sophomore record set for release on October 14 on Lilac Records (via Kobalt Label Services), sees Kele traveling further down the rabbit hole, but making something darker and more sensual in the process. This time around, proceedings take on a distinctly libidinous, downcast feel, the air thick with possibility and tension.
Check out the minute-long teaser below to get an idea of what he is up to.
