Track of the Day: 'How Deep Is Your Love?'

More

Past Tracks New York City's reigning kings of post-punk dance rock, The Rapture, will release their fourth album on September 6th, and in the five years since their last record, many have wondered whether they still have it. Let me assure you, they still have it, in spades. In keeping with band's reputation, "How Deep Is Your Love?" is a total banger, with low-key house piano lurking behind buzzy synth bass and one of the band's trademark up-tempo rhythms. It rises and falls like the ocean tide, and right before the 4:30 mark, this year's go-to instrument appears. (That's right, a sax solo!) I dare you to stand still with this song playing.
