Bloc Party, ‘Kettling’ – New Video

Subscribe to on
Bloc Party‘s Kele Okereke recently revealed that ‘Kettling,’ off their new album ‘Four,’ is mostly about last year’s Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City, and now, the band has unleashed a video for the tune. So, does it feature violent footage of activists clashing with police in the Big Apple? Not exactly. Is it about the 99 percenters marching through downtown NYC? Nope.

In fact, the clip shows school-age children taking part in a friendly game of Red Rover, except the only thing truly friendly about it that everyone is allowed to take part. Beyond that, the schoolyard hijinks prove about as dangerous as anything that went down in lower Manhattan last year, perhaps offering up some further commentary on societal ills. Either way, it’s not the prettiest clip to watch.
