Bloc Party’s “Prayer” Online

Bloc Party's "Prayer" Online

U.K. buzz band Bloc Party has unveiled the first single (“The Prayer”) from their upcoming album, A Weekend in the City, due February 7 in America. The song is certainly denser and muddier than the super-adrenalized riffs and Gang of Four/Buzzcocks “homage” that is their debut, 2005’s Silent Alarm. It also sounds a lot like fellow buzzed-out ensemble, TV on the Radio, except with even more Bowie-esque textures. Stream “The Prayer” here.
