New Bloc Party track - studio demo

on Monday, August 21, 2006
I'm sure you're fully familiar with who Bloc Party are, so I'll just cut to the chase. A recording of 'Song For Clay' (formerly 'Merge On The Freeeway') from an April demo session has leaked. I'm a big Bloc Party fan (first saw the fellas in Feb 2004 when they were still largely unknown) so the prospect of hearing album demos was almost pant wetting. Alas, I've had a bit of trouble downloading the track, I'm sure you won't though.

"The new Bloc Party tune, 'Song For Clay' is about the main character in [Brett Easton Ellis' novel 'Less Than Zero'], a rich young college student who returns to his hometown of Los Angeles for the winter break. Clay subsequently becomes bored and turns to drugs and cheap thrills to keep him occupied, resulting in further boredom. This dizzying spiral of desperation takes him to relentless parties in glitzy mansions, seedy bars, and underground rock clubs as he seeks inner direction."
