Block Party-"This Modern Love" (LIVE from The Take-Away Shows)

"...We’d been told it would not be easy. A year before, we already tried to set up a Take Away Show with them in London, with the support of JD Beauvallet, but nothing could convince them. They never play acoustic. They’re very shy. It’s impossible."

"When Kele finally started singing, Colin was pressed against him, and it felt like Kele was jumping from a diving board too high for him. He caught us off-guard. Everyone was speechless. There’s nothing more to add. Five minutes of rare sincerity, two artists doing something with no safety net and without really understanding why. They took that risk, and we thank them for it."
