I just found out that Bloc Party is coming to Seattle in April. I am excited out of my mind.
They are all very cool and cute. And their music is ridiculously danceable and in turns romantic.
I have long had a crush on their lead singer, Kele Okereke, because he is British and handsome and has a totally hot staccato burst of a singing voice.
Though, the other day my friend and I had a long conversation about how Kele and Tunde Adebimpe (TV on the Radio singer) might have to fist fight and/or wrestle before we decide who is cuter and smarter.
Tunde sings for a band that might be the second best working today (after Radiohead, of course.) He is a brilliant lyricist and his voice makes me swoon and he comes across as charming as hell in every interview I’ve ever read with him. Also, he is ridiculously cute.
I propose that fight happen soon. Though, you can certainly try to make your own violence-free decision:
It is the battle of the sexy Nigerians.
To help here is Bloc Party’s video for “So Here We Are”. As well as TV on the Radio’s beautiful short film for their cover of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Modern Romance”. Enjoy, and choose wisely.
