Always New Depths

- Bloc Party

Perfect songs don’t ex — oh wait, never mind, they totally fucking do.

"Always New Depths" was released in 2004 on the CD single of "Helicopter". As a b-side on a CD single, I didn’t know it existed until, ohhhhhhhhhh, Tuesday, March 27th, 2012. That’s about 8 years. 8 years of liking Bloc Party, 8 years of not knowing that my favorite Bloc Party song existed.

"Always New Depths" captures what Bloc Party are best at, which is making emotional music that sounds upbeat, and super awesome guitar riffs. In fact, for me at least, it really is the perfect Bloc Party song as it does everything they have tried to accomplish on other songs, but better. I suppose I don’t really need to convince anybody that this is my favorite Bloc Party song so I’ll let you do the listening and make that decision for yourself. 

In other Bloc Party news, the band are currently recording their currently untitled 4th album, the first since 2008’s electronic inspired “Intimacy”. This record is also the first album to not be released on record label Wichita Recordings, but rather French Kiss Records.
