Having reformed last year after a 5 year hiatus, The Rapture are back.
Alongside labelmates and peers LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture defined the punk-electro crossover sound that came out of New York on DFA Records in the mid-2000s. Their classic debut album Echoes was voted best album of 2006 by Pitchfork and number 2 by NME.
‘The Rapture, back after nearly a decade away, was downright ferocious in scratchy disco-punk tunes like “Get Myself Into It” and “House of Jealous Lovers,” the latter of which helped launch the New York rock revival that also gave us The Strokes and Vampire Weekend’ - LA Times
‘The Rapture still maintains a flailing energy and enthusiasm that most of the other dance punk bands could only fake.' - Pitchfork
