Single Review – Karen O – Rapt

On the September 8th the wonderful and enigmatic Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs will release her debut solo album with Crush Songs. This first track from this is ‘Rapt’. A little taste of what is to come in September at just under two minutes. In those two minutes, the song is a single strung out and muted and in a gentle affair with a subtle riff. Over this is Karen’s highly distinguishable vocal which conveys intimacy, narration and distant ecstasy. A simple and basic track that is a small window into what Karen and the new album is capable of.
