A sequel that’s faster, flashier and more bombastic than the original
Bloc Party - 'Day Four'
Bloc Party find themselves in contemplative mode - and it's a slow-burning treat
Okereke's vocals are reflective, and mournful, noting the atmosphere around him 'it's in the trees, it's in the leaves', and encouraging the listener to seek solace in their surroundings, singing "If you are alone, stay that way- the city's here for you". The solace doesn't last for long though, there's a sense of anxious action - he's searching for something to occupy his thoughts. Languid strings accompany a spidery middle eight, with ghostly vocals building up a sense of unease. It's a track to invest some time in. Press repeat, and it'll creep up on you like a cobweb.
