About the video

The lead singer of Bloc Party discusses his solo album The Boxer, explaining how he's spent a few years learning to program and then brought these skills to bear on the more electronically-focused album.

He also talks about his sonic experiments with frequencies, his loop station, and his DJing experience and how this influenced the way he wants to make music. Along with how 2-step garage and 90s house music have informed his musical style.

Check out the track "Tenderoni" below.
