Kele – Tenderoni

Truthfully, this song sounds a bit rehashed. As many readers will know I am a big Bloc Party fan, and will always regard any of the band’s work as something of even minimal importance. This solo effort from lead singer Kele Okereke isn’t bad, but it also did not leave me feeling warm and tingly. Folks who prefer this type of music will say this is better than anything Bloc Party ever did. They would be wrong. A preference for dance music, mash-ups and the like does not mean this song is better than just about any of Bloc Party’s work. Through the years and records Bloc Party’s sound has moved further away from Indie guitar band and into over-produced dance rock. Since it is Bloc Party they make it work, though it isn’t as good as their early music. Kele on his own – completely electronic – doesn’t quite do it for me. My expectations for this record took a hit today.

    I agree. I really like electronic music but this just sounds like a not half as good rehash (as you say) of the completely amazing Bodyrox feat. Luciana – Yeah Yeah from 2006 and all the rehashes that followed that song then. Hopefully the next single will be something more original.
