I love Bloc Party, their live performances were phenomenal.
I put them on when I was writing NEAR EDGWARE and let Kele provide the voice of Caleb’s struggles.
Then Kele broke away to make his solo album: The Boxer.
In this track, Everything You Wanted, the lyrics and the video show why he continues to inspire me. The lyrics are guilt-ridden.
Kele is precise:
- when he explains why this relationship ended
- how it feels to know you are responsible for the disintegration
- where the pain bites deepest
This is no 2-D performance, Kele tries to show the truth from the protective crust to the molten core.
