Divus Julius presents: Bloc Party

East London art punkers Bloc Party mixed angular sonics with pop structures and helped shape the sound of British indie rock throughout the 2000s. Tense post-punk rhythms and dissonant guitar hooks took their cues from Gang of Four and Joy Division on the band’s 2005 debut Silent Alarm

Bloc Party haven’t released an LP since Hymns way back at the beginning of 2016, but they’re set to change that in 2022. The band will release their sixth album Alpha Games in April.

The Wombats are an English indie rock band formed in Liverpool in 2003. The Wombats have dropped their new single, ‘Everything I Love Is Going To Die’.

It’s a track from their upcoming fifth studio album ‘Fix Yourself, Not The World’, which is set for release on 7th January via AWAL and sees them tour the UK next spring. 

Best Covers: Dum Dum Girls ‘There Is A Light That Never Goes Out’

Dum Dum Girls’ cover appeared as the final track on their 2011 EP “He gets me high”, which was produced by Raveonettes’ Sune Rose Wagner and by. Their version is bigger, brasher, and faster. The arrangements are the same but the sound is completely different. There are noisy guitars and heavy-footed bass drumming, and Dee Dee’s vocals are exuberant and thrilling in the pure emotion created by fresh love.
