Over the weekend, Bloc Party’s new single “Octopus” was accidentally put on sale for a limited time on amazon. Some quick-minded fans bought the single and soon the song was out there for everyone to see. The band couldn’t have been pleased, but things have calmed down and now they have released the proper music video for “Octopus”, as originally planned.
“Octopus” isn’t your traditional rock single. Bloc Party don’t hold back in anyway, using guitar delay effects resulting in an experimental sound. It’s a lot different from what I expected from their return-single. I wasn’t impressed on my first listen, but I kept listening and soon it all clicked. “Octopus” will soon get a hold of you, just when you least expect it.
Watch/listen to “Octopus” below.
