As an artist, Kele Okereke has never stood still, relentlessly seeking new ways in which to present his luminous songs. Fresh from successfully reinventing his band Bloc Party last year, Kele has returned with his third solo album, Fatherland. The adrenalised electronics of his previous two solo records, The Boxer and Trick, are replaced here by a much more organic even classic sonic palette: delicate folk (Streets Been Talking), sumptuous soul (Do U Right), and insidious, dub reggae-meets-Weimar cabaret (You Keep On Whispering). It’s all as far from Bloc Party’s hectic wall of sound as can be imagined.
