New Music from Bloc Party and The Killers

Now this is pretty exciting. For me at least. Two bands that have defined my music taste today have released long waited singles overnight.
Four years on from Intimacy, Bloc Party have released the first single from their upcoming album Four. It’s a fairly typical Bloc Party track, but lacks the climax of some of their early anthems. I’m hoping for a bit more on the next album, but it’s by no means a bad track.
Speaking of anthems, The Killers are no strangers. Also having a four-year hiatus since their last album, Runaways is a return to form after Day & Age. Again, the band seem a little rusty, but the track screams of grandeur and anthemic impulses that have become fitting of The Killers.
