Video: Bloc Party – Octopus

Ladies and gentleman, Bloc Party is back.  Its been four years since their last album, the ever-disappointing Intimacy, and it seems as though the band has found their stride again.  On the heels of the new album, Four due out August 21, the band has resurfaced in the form of a very Silent Alarm-esque new track.  “Octopus” sees Bloc Party ditch the over-the-top electro-dance-pop for a return to the colorful and energetic pop-punk sound that fit them so well.  Its a very welcome rebirth, and one the rekindles my faith in the upcoming album.  Check out the video below, but beware, you may experience seizing fits.
