Declan McKenna – “Rapture”

Not enough people are talking about Declan McKenna, and it shows. His new album, Zeroes, is sensual, electric, and brooding. “Rapture” clings to a very Bowie-bound approach, something slinky while also unfurling his own singular voice.

“At first, you will find / A prophecy of what could have been / You know, there’s all sorts of crap on the TV these days,” he unhinges this year’s special kind of crazy. McKenna approaches the melody with a languid weirdness, swiftly careening out of control by the song’s final few moments. And it’s just a little bit spooky.
