Here's something a little bit more down and dirty for Hump Day. :D It's from Bloc Party's 2005 debut album, "Silent Alarm." If this is your first time hearing this band, I'd say this track is a great introduction!
Based in London, the band formed in 1999 with just Kele Okereke (vocals, guitar) and Russell Lissack (lead guitar). Their bassist, Gordon Moakes, and drummer, Matt Tong, joined later. Together, the group has enjoyed immense popularity since the release of their 2005 debut album.
A slew of EPs and singles followed along with four more albums. The band went on hiatus in 2009 to pursue solo projects, but resumed making music together in 2011. Their latest release is the "Four" album of 2012. You can listen to Track 2 from that album below. It's gritty, but totally danceable!
Check out Bloc Party on Facebook and stick around! I've got lots more to share! Happy Wednesday!
