block party return triumphant on new single “traps”

January 7, 2022

“I wanna be your contact high”

Bloc Party are one of those acts who have gone through so many evolutions that you can find someone who will fiercely defend each of their albums as their best. But fans of their legendary debut have a lot to look forward to based on the first single off their forthcoming full length Alpha Games. The back-to-basics “Traps” finds the band doing what they do best: massively kinetic post-punk. Kele Okereke is always fiercest when his voice sounds like it could be an invitation to party or riot depending on the syllable, instilling every shout with the line between want and need.
