Ditching the chaos of the clubs for the calm of some cosy venues, Kele Okereke announces a string of intimate Australian shows in support of his latest solo album Fatherland.
Produced in response to the birth of his first daughter Savannah and reflecting several significant life changes, Fatherland (Okereke’s third solo work after 2010’s The Boxer and 2014’s Trick) has been met with luminous critical acclaim and will set a reverent tone for these unique performances in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
While instrumentally a world away from the visceral output of the newly reinvented Bloc Party (their most recent record Hymns was a hit in 2016), the conviction in Okereke’s inimitable voice is strong throughout, and remains the reliable focal point that has held audiences in rapture for more than a decade. It seems like there has always been a sense of vulnerability inherent in his work, but this has never been fully realised until now.
