Bands going on hiatus often means one of three things: the group have fallen out, the band have run out of ideas, or the lead singer wants to go it alone. In the case of Bloc Party, it appears to be the latter, as Kele Okereke prepares to release his electro-tinged solo debut, The Boxer. The first single is apparently a "slow-churning dance-pop gem" (don't you just love it when PRs write the Wikipedia page?), but we like Mr Okereke's new direction, even if it does stray close to other electro anthems (Wiley's Wearing My Rolex, for instance, or Mason Vs Princess Superstar's Perfect). Anyway, have a listen to Kele's Tenderoni and let us know your thoughts.
