at den Atelier Doors: 7:00 pm


The solo debut from Bloc Party singer/guitarist Kele Okereke pushes boundaries with a blend of raw rock and energetic electro-pop. Kele is giving Bloc Party a break and he has dropped his surname to release an album that cherry-picks the best elements of the current dance scene – garage, distorted electro, house – and moulds them around some of the best songs of Okereke’s career so far. The Boxer is loose-limbed, electronic yet human and, most importantly, full of the experimentation and genre-blending Kele always claimed to love. His earnestness shines through, and in shaking off his rock baggage, he’s made the best kind of electro album: the sort that can be appreciated just as much from the couch as in the club. And as with Bloc Party before, Kele Okereke is once again pushing the boundaries of what British indie can be…
