“Tenderoni” (Video)


    Bloc Party’s Kele Okerke has gone solo as his band takes a hiatus, and “Tenderoni” is the culmination of his solo artistic freedom being unleashed. It also marks the unleashing of his goofy video for “Tenderoni,” in which a boxer with way to much powder on his hands gets into some modern dance with fembots. This certainly looks pretty cool, though it looks cool in the way an advertisement for Brita water filters looks pretty cool. At first, when Kele announced he was going solo, I was a bit disappointed, but then I remembered that Bloc Party was slowly starting to sound just like this, so if I really want Bloc Party product, this is about how it’d sound anyway. 


    Kele’s The Boxer is due out on June 22. [P4K]
