One of my favourite albums of last year was Kele from Bloc Party’s solo album The Boxer. It did alright at the time, just hitting the top twenty, and this track Tenderoni made it into the top forty but then disappeared. It’s a shame because it’s a great single, landing somewhere between New Order and Orbital, with a massive chorus and huge amounts of 90s dance rush moments.

It’s euphoric and yet dark, dance music for when you’re by yourself really. It has a feel of somebody sitting by themselves looking across the city through a window, watching everybody else having a good time.
