Single Review
"Talons" - Bloc Party

Intimacy doesn't get it's physical release until October 27, but Bloc Party is already releasing the album's second single. The band promised that the physical copy would have songs that weren't featured on the digital version and "Talons" is the first of those songs to surface. In terms of danciness, it lies in between "Flux" and "Mercury". Unlike either of those tracks, its video doesn't get its influence from Power Ranger , rather, Will Smith's Summer '09 movie, whatever it will be. Oriental xylophone runs are feathered in the chorus which give way to insistent blaring guitar. "I have been wicked, I have been arrogant" bemoans Kele before asking, "When did you become such a slut?" Great addition to Intimacy and probably a better lead single than "Mercury".
