been a mighty five years since their last LP but The Rapture are back with ‘In The Grace of Your Love’. Blending their disco post punk sounds and encapsulating dance floors all over the world with first single ‘How Deep is Your Love’. The record is a definite dance floor killer, with hand claps and piano hook giving off old school rave vibes and an unexpected saxophone wig out.

Since the epic ‘House of Jealous Lovers’ there has been a whole host of indie bands flying the disco flag for modern day pop music. So having wrote the book on combining disco with post punk how do The Rapture compare thirteen years on from their first release. Well ‘In The Grace of Your Love’ is full of groovy bass lines, electro keyboards and crashing disco style beats flying in and out everywhere with unexpected breakdowns and instrumental freak outs giving a definate impression that they are capable to showing the new kids on the block a trick or three.

Its peculiar sounds make it an interesting listen. ‘Come Back To Me’ has a big club style feel with an accordion providing the under lying melody, a sign that The Rapture are finding new and innovative ways to make music however unlikely the source.

The title track has a great hook with retro computer sounds throughout the intro pathing the way for Jenner’s amazing vocals carrying a euphoric melody, fusing house and jazz with infectious results. Unpredictable, wildly entertaining and bordering on ridiculously brilliant ‘In The Grace of Your Love’ will have you dancing, proper dancing.
