2016 has been a very good year for Bloc Party. The London dance punk outfit released their fifth studio LP, Hymns
...which we praised as one of their best efforts in years
. They're on a massive tour with stops at a major marquee festivals like Governor's Ball. They're releasing one great music video after another. And, maybe we're just bragging here, but they tore the roof off of the house during an amazing concert they played during our SXSW day party in Austin, TX, last month.
Bloc Party are roaring back with another video for one of Hymns
' most memorable tracks, "Virtue." The subdued but hypnotic electro-soul number is paired with a video that feels like a fusion of 50s sci-fi with Star Trek's approach to alien women as well as some unexpected Cronenberg body horror. Bloc Party never fail to be memorable and the video for "Virtue" is no exception.
And be sure to look out for our SXSW concert with Bloc Party in the weeks ahead but dig on our concert with them in Australia til then.
