Seattle Sounds-Post Rapture Party- By Dawn Wood

prp_mercPost Rapture Party was formed in 2011 in the fires that came after. Those left behind were brought together to celebrate that they were chosen to remain. There is always some one left behind. They are the after party joined in joyous celebration with the fellow orphans left upon the earth. Three years ago fate brought Kane, Noccie, Spooky and Ashe together. They brought together the sadness, fury, regret, romance and passion in the darkest days and the brightest of nights. Even though it feels like they came together overnight, the efforts of their work took many months. Post Rapture Party is always  working, creating and perfecting their stories for their audience’s entertainment, even in the most mundane moments of life. Safely amongst other artists, musicians and the baristas, Post Rapture Party lives their shadow lives.  Their horror influences include:

Dust Devil by Richard Stanley; House of 1,000 Corpses and Devil’s Rejects; and Cropsey which is actually a documentary. Cropsey was an urban legend on Staten Island about a boogie man. There actually turned out to be some truth to the legend and years later, they apprehended the serial killer.

I would best describe Post Rapture Party as Dark Wave, in the realm of such great artists as: Siouxsie and the Banshees and Kate Bush. Haunted vocals and sweeping synths swirl around the listener.  Post Rapture Party has played with Strap on Halo, Colour Flies and Spiritual Bat.  They have also played with local Blacklist Seattle Gothic bands: Murder Weapons, Grasp Logic, XY Beautiful and PixelPussy.
