WooHa! Bloc Party Take On Busta
Known for their thoughtful blend of angular, dance-infused rock, Bloc Party should get heads scratching with news that 'The Bolero,' a tentatively titled cut from their upcoming second album, takes cues from the catalog of Busta Rhymes.
"The initial idea came from watching the Busta Rhymes video for 'Touch It,' where there are these young majorettes that are going through this kind of cheer pattern," frontman Kele Okereke tells AOL Music. "I thought that was one of the most amazing things I'd heard, and I wanted to write a song that revolved around that sort of idea."
Before hitting the road this week for a summer U.S. tour, the Bloc-rockers were working out the final touches with producer Jacknife Lee in their native England. "[It's] gonna shock a lot of people," Okereke says of the cut. "It's about dancing and passion and the main feature is stomping [and] hand claps, which is one of the signature features of the bolero dance."
