Biography

As spikey, new wave, garage rock acts began to make a resurgence in the early 2000s, Brooklyn band The Rapture added oddball funk licks and primitive post-punk clatter into the mix and created one of the most unlikely hipster, indie anthems of the era.

Originally formed in 1998 by front man Luke Jenner and drummer Vito Roccoforte, their debut album 'Mirror' earned comparisons to Joy Division and Public Image Limited; but it was when they started working with DFA Records producers James Murphy and Tim Goldsworthy that their dance-punk crossover sound started to take shape. With its jittery rhythms, cow bells, jerky guitars and Jenner's manic falsetto, single 'House of Jealous Lovers' became a big hit and grew from being played at New York club nights to eventually making the UK top 30 in 2003. They ended up performing on 'Late Night With David Letterman' and their album 'Echoes' received plenty of critical acclaim; yet the band failed to follow up on their cult following and despite their third record 'Pieces of the People We Love' being produced by Paul Epworth and Danger Mouse, it failed to make much of an impact. The band split after the death of Jenner's mother in 2008, but returned to DFA Records for 'In Grace of Your Love' in 2011.
