Declan McKenna – Rapture

Enthusiasm for British singer-songwriter Declan McKenna has been brewing for years. And he’s only 21. His quick rise to stardom started in 2015, when he won Glastonbury Festival’s Emerging Talent Competition. At that point, he had only just released his debut single Brazil, a protest song criticizing FIFA and the 2014 World Cup.

Last September, his second album Zeros came out. It’s clearly influenced by The Beatles, David Bowie and other musical legends from decades before he was even born. Zeros is an extremely strong album, especially for someone his age, and the track Rapture immediately stood out. Now, it’s his new single. A great slice of glammed-up indie-pop, with a chorus that’ll refuse to get out of your head.

McKenna explains: β€œRapture – though it seems to touch on the current state of the world – was born early last year, and reflects some of my thoughts on the end of the world and the threats that humanity will face in the future, and on common fears for the future.”
