This is a 2CD deluxe version of Bloc Party’s Four. ‘FOUR’ was a triumphant and much-welcomed return of one of the most important and loved acts to emerge out of British guitar music in the noughties. The bonus disc is their EP of new material called “The Nextwave Sessions”. Born and shaped on the road during the bands worldwide tour in 2012, which saw the formative UK four piece playing the biggest headline shows of the career, including a 19,000 capacity sold out show at Earl’s Court, the five songs that comprise the EP are a natural continuation of Bloc Party’s much-welcomed return to the UK music limelight.

The band worked with renowned producer Dan Carey (whose credits include records with Bat For Lashes, Lianna La Havas and Hot Chip) on the two tracks that open the EP – ‘Ratchet’ and ‘Obscene’. ‘Ratchet’, the lead track off the EP and one of the groups’ punchiest, most confrontational and viciously danceable tracks to date.

Across its 5 tracks, the EP amalgamates the visceral energy of the bands live shows with bright studio sheen, and Kele's lyrics and vocals at their most uncompromisingly biting. From the slow-motion, trance-haunted balladry of ‘Obscene’ to the shimmering swells and skipping percussion of ‘Montreal’, to ‘French Exit’ that is fuelled by the bands trademark sharp angular riffs and combustible dynamics, and ending on a grand and impassioned note with the forward-looking ‘Children Of The Future’ – the ‘NEXTWAVE sessions' is essential, unmissable Bloc Party.
