Tanlines (featuring Luke Jenner) - O Seizing The Day O

Fresh tune from Tanlines, featuring Luke Jenner, known as the frontman for fellow NYC band, The Rapture. Here, the boys come together for a sweet slice of the new called O Seizing The Day O. The track is taken from the duo's forthcoming compilation album, Volume On, which will hold all their early EPs alongside remixes from Memory Tapes amongst others.




Tanlines Volume On will be released on December 6.


I like-a-dis-jam.

The Creators Project: The Rapture Get Into It

After a secretly not-so-secret show at Union Pool last Wednesday, the new formation of NYC's own The Rapture jumped over to Milk Studios on Saturday to toss out their tunes to the wanting ears of all at The Creators Project, held at Milk Studios. Staged on the loading dock of the venue, with half of the crowd standing outside stretching to see in, the refurbished line-up, sans bassist Mattie Safer, wasted no time in launching into the hits.



Given the opening time-slot for all bands at 6:00pm, maybe it was the heat, the space, or the free booze that had everyone already too drunk to dance, but mostly everyone (save for our pack of brats) stood fairly still. Hey kids, you could've saved your motionless gazes for the art installations on the upper floors! Regardless of that, we spent a good portion of the set jumping around like a true fanatic and the foursome sounded really tight, which only piques my curiosity and anticipation for a new album.


Had to jump out of that spot before the set was over and before taking one of many elevator rides to the next performance in order to catch as much as 'twas humanly possible, but The Rapture are most definitely back. Even when taking over a loading dock.
