Bloc Party singer/guitarist Kele Okereke is apparently going to release a solo album that is mostly electronic. As a fan of Bloc Party’s debut Silent Alarm, I lost interest with their subsequent albums due to their incorporation of electronica in their music. Silent Alarm was one of the best albums by a British band in ages. It had razor sharp guitars, whip-snap drumming, was smart without being pretentious. Like Kings of Leon’s Aha Shake Heartbreak, that I was also obsessed with in 2005, Silent Alarm seemed to be on the brink of something new and exciting in rock and roll. I don’t think I’m wrong in suggesting that if Bloc Party kept on this momentum, they could have been a huge band. I have absolutely no interest in buying Okereke’s solo debut, because that type of music is to my particular taste. However, I’m hoping that by releasing a solo album where he can exorcise his interest in electronic music, Okereke will bring Bloc Party back together and make the album that should be the true follow-up to Silent Alarm.
