The Up-Turn

I haven’t written a review in over half a year!

Most people were ready to completely write off The Rapture as a band that struck gold with one album and would spend the rest of their career unsuccessfully attempting to recreate the magic.  Their album Echoes was an incredibly important album for the indie-rock scene as it introduced the ideas of dance music to the skinny jeaned masses.  Subsequent releases, however, never were able to excite as much as that album.  For me, ‘How Deep is Your Love?’ is a complete revival of exciting music from the band.  Their return to DFA Records shows in the production of the track which builds from rolling percussion into a saxophone infused jam.  The lyrics could sound cheesy coming from anywhere else, however, it is completely convincing and genuine as the epic conclusion has Luke Jenner exclaims “Hallelujah!”

9/10
