The Rapture - Olio
This is the original version of this track — they did another version on the beginning of their 2003 LP Echoes, which uses more electronic sounds and a slower beat. I prefer this one, since it has a much clearer primary melody and a lot more energy, though the synths they use on Echoes are better defined.

Cross-pollination between scenes is still pretty rare in this day and age. Because there are so many bands—and so many of them have “teams” of managers, publicists, tour managers, label owners, and booking agents—every perceived mistake can be deciminated, analyzed and overanalyzed by literally anyone at anytime. That doesn’t mean that these bands are 100% risk-averse, just that there are more people than ever who depend on their success or failure.
