4Ever Songs: The Rapture “How Deep Is Your Love?

Once hailed by some writers as the second coming of Gang of Four, The Rapture were the flagship band of the post-punk revival that swept through the indie underground during the early 2000s.

The Rapture’s excellent gospel-disco rager “How Deep Is Your Love?” is the better part of a year old now, but its video, in which a dancing Indian In The Cupboard-sized Luke Jenner entertains a bunch of ladies at a tea party, is brand new. It is also ridiculous.

Divus Julius presents: Bloc Party

East London art punkers Bloc Party mixed angular sonics with pop structures and helped shape the sound of British indie rock throughout the 2000s. Tense post-punk rhythms and dissonant guitar hooks took their cues from Gang of Four and Joy Division on the band’s 2005 debut Silent Alarm

Bloc Party haven’t released an LP since Hymns way back at the beginning of 2016, but they’re set to change that in 2022. The band will release their sixth album Alpha Games in April.

Introducing…Crack Cloud

Calgary collective Crack Cloud are a many-headed beast. In their present incarnation there are seven of them, playing various strains of guitars, percussion and synths, but you get the feeling that could change with the wind. They could just as soon be a three piece, or a full art-rock orchestra, or just one person on their own with a sample pad.

Their music is like a lost gem from post-punk’s most arty moments: urgent, strange, and groovy  in danceable akin to Gang of Four and early Talking Heads.

Vancouver collective Crack Cloud have finally announced that their debut album is on the way! Following 2018’s EPs ‘Crack Cloud’ and ‘Anchoring Point’, the group’s first full length ‘PAIN OLYMPICS’ is set to land on 17th July, and to celebrate their sharing the video for punk-funk lead single ‘Ouster Stew’ as well.

Ville à Dômat: La Vie Bohème


Shopping es va formar a principis de 2013 abraçant el post punk dels 70 amb una voracitat que poques vegades es veu en aquests dies, evocant l’agressió de Gang of Four, l’udol voraç de The Slits i l’empenta dance de Delta 5 i ESG. El seu primer LP al seu propi segell MILK al Regne Unit, va vendre els seus 1.000 unitats en tan sols uns mesos. El Segon, Why Choice, va ser llançat aFat Cat Records a tot el món a l’octubre de 2015 i també es va esgotar en un mes. Els concerts de Shopping -com a teloners d’ESG i Gang Of Four i a festivals com End of the Road i ATP són increïblement divertits i innegablement emocionants. Pel seu esperat tercer àlbum The Official Body, Shopping s’han associat amb la llegenda de l’indie pop i l’innovador Edwyn Collins. Aquesta nit en concert a Razzmatazz.
