Currently one of London's hottest properties and looking likely to make it big in 2004, Bloc Party look set to have quite a hit on their hands with 'Little Thoughts'. Evidently raised on guitar bands of the late 70s/early 80s, the Blocs are recommended to fans of this era as they sound very similar in terms of guitar sounds and mixing style. With a sudden upsurge in bands that seem to take so much vocal style from the 'wrong' part of the 80s (we're practically ripe for a Talking Heads reunion some weeks), it is good that there's someone around to tip the scales, as vocalist Kele Okereke manages to avoid sounding anything other than heartfelt as he belts out "I'll go back if you ask me" during each chorus. For a band to derive so much from a time period so riddled with very dodgy bands yet still sound refreshing is a positive sign that this band could be one to watch. Just when you thought the verse/chorus/verse popness was over, the closing bars feature a quite charming signature change from the standard 4 beats to a bar to no less than seven, which is so seamless it's barely noticeable. 'Little Thoughts' alone should be more than enough to merit buying this single.
In terms of actual sound, there are very few evident production techniques on the go here - it sounds very 'dry' and this works really well for me, as you can hear the song as it's supposed to sound as opposed to hidden under 12 layers of chorus and reverb. This isn't just indie we're dealing with here, it's almost lo-fi.

Backing up 'Little Thoughts' are b-sides 'Tulips' and a remix of previous offering 'Banquet'. Slow indie number 'Tulips' is quite a relaxed, amiable 3 minutes but its slow pace and thin-sounding guitars, whilst not offending, do nothing to make you hit repeat and it's all very forgettable.

This single proves that the hype about Bloc Party (depending what magazines you read) is certainly worth it.
"Little Thoughts" is an excellently crafted single which will lead nicely into the anticipated EP. The vocals are key to this band as they are unique from much I have heard in terms of style and content. The start of the song starts very lo-fi and turns into a more fuller sound and this, I think, works beautifully for this song.
The album in January is sure to be a resounding success if Bloc Party keep producing music like this.

Bloc Heads 29 Aug. 2004
By altmalta - Published on
Format: Audio CD
After the awesome `Banquet/Staying Fat' single I had a little feeling that the next Bloc Party single would be weak but IT IS EVEN BETTER THAN BANQUET!!!!!!!!!!!! Little Thoughts starts of with distant guitar noises, then a drum rolls and the listener is then plunged into the song (a trick only Bloc party can do) needless to say that it has a great hands in the air chorus and make you feel jettisoned into outer space.

`Tulips' is the first official Bloc Party ballad and even when they are in slow mode they excel. It starts of slowly and changes pace when singer Kele Okereke yelps `You're the one I love' and then you get goosebumps for the rest of the song.

The last track is a remix of banquet which is quite good and dancey, but it does not beat the best remix I heard this year, which is the Futureheads mix of the `Streets Fit but you know it', however the remix complements the feel of the single.

So what we have here is a top notch package from one of Britain's best and freshest groups. Can't wait to salivate all over the next release!

Sure the title track is good but the unreleased song Tulips is worth the admission price if you manage to find it. It's a great song and really catchy even though it's mellow.
