The Rapture – Sail Away


There have been many great acts to straddle house music in the modern age – Hercules and Love Affair, Justice and, to a more punk extent, LCD Soundsystem. The reason many can’t be named, though, is because if an effective niche isn’t found within the genre it’ll more likely hinder your efforts rather than solidify them.

In the case of The Rapture’s ‘Sail Away’, I can’t help but find the overly simplistic progression and one repeating hook to grate on me. The song gives evidence of the band’s Echoes heyday, but without a change of direction or sharper focus on the dance-punk genre they so readily embrace, they’re not headed any place interesting soon.
