Bloc Party – Blue Light (6/10)

Bloc Party - Blue Light

Artist: Bloc Party Song: Blue Light Album: Silent Alarm Year: 2005

A potentially heartbreakingly beautiful song, ‘Blue Light’ is up there with some of the very best lyric writing over the last twenty years. Kele Okereke’s whimsical and touching vocals are only slightly engulfed by a delayed and atmospheric guitar sound that will make you lose yourself in the song.

As the slowness gives way to one of the best bridges Bloc Party have ever produced, there is a sense of triumph in the way the music delivers the fast beats. The chiming of Lissack’s guitar will leave such a beautifully memorable note engraved on your mind that you’ll find it ridiculously hard not to instantly replay this song.
