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.
Bloc Party's Kele Okereke says that while many fans believe the song 'Kettling' off their new album, 'Four,' is about the riots that overtook his British homeland last year, the tune is really more focused on the Occupy Wall Street protests that peaked while he was in New York writing music for the disc.
Bloc Party last released a new album in 2008, and now, four years later, the British post-punk revivalist four-piece is gearing up to unleash its fourth album, appropriately titled 'Four,' on Aug. 20. That's a lot of fours, and here comes another one in the form of 'Day Four,' the latest tune unleashed from the disc.
