With their eagerly-awaited sixth album ‘Alpha Games’ arriving on 29th April via Infectious / BMG, Bloc Party are now sharing the video for first single ‘Traps’.
Kele Okereke says, “From the moment we wrote ‘Traps’, we knew it had to be the first thing people heard from this album; playing it in soundchecks on our last tour before it was finished and hearing how it sounded in those big rooms and outdoors.”
