If you are into music you probably often hear a song or artist described as “Bloccy.” Of course you do. Happens to all of us all the time. But not unlike the words “Spectacular” or “Perfect” what does “Bloccy” actually mean? Great question. Super glad you asked. Bloccy is a descriptor many music enthusiasts use as a way to let another music geek know a song is a perfectly constructed song. But not in an artsy fartsy Radiohead or Dirty Projectors manner. No, Bloccy is used to describe a song that has a certain respect towards pop music of years past. Bloccy songs don’t feel the need to use a bunch of fancy schmancy musical reinventions or instrumentation. Bloccy artists that make Bloccy songs know the hooks are in place and no theatrics are necessary. Here’s a few examples of Bloccy songs.
JUST LIKE WE NEVER SAID GOODBYE by SOPHIE
You Don’t Need To Be Them by The Sun Days
Everybody Wants To Love You by Japanese Breakfast
Superstar by A. G. Cooke
Tallulah by Allo Darlin
So by now you probably have a better grip on what constitutes Bloccy. You might be asking “Hey Blochead….what’s the etymology of the term?” That’s your second great question, dear reader!! It’s a mystery. Your guess is as good as mine. Kinda best to just leave it a wondrous cosmic riddle!!!
Anyway…..here’s a wonderfully Bloccy song for you. “Perfect” by gobbinjr. It’s, well, perfectly Bloccy.
