Bloc Party + VHS Collection

  • Music, Rock and indie

Time Out says

In the mid-aughts, Bloc Party burst onto indie rock playlists with its confident brand of uptempo dance rock, adding an urgency to the taut post-punk sound favored by groups like Franz Ferdinand and Gang of Four. More than a decade later, the group's tempo has slowed down, but four-on-the-floor rhythms still dominate its latest album, Hymns, which layers synths behind lead singer Kele Okereke's ruminations on faith and love. New York synthpop trio VHS Collection opens this official Lollapalooza aftershow.
