New sonic impulses…
Dutch squad RATS ON RAFTS have a new, third, longplayer in the pipeline.
‘Excerpts From Chapter 3: The Mind Runs A Net Of Rabbit Paths’ will hit
the streets on 29th January 2021 via Fire Records.
Fire Records about the new LP: “A psyche-fuelled journey into the id punctuated
with rhythmic kabuki modal mood swings, thunderstorms, digital beeps, traffic noise,
and just plain old beautiful cacophonous reverb-drenched sound when needed. The third chapter refers to the last five years that Rats On Rafts have spent creating their “difficult”
third album. Each song spins a yarn; there are plagues, dreams, wind and fire, ‘mythical’ characters, and the search for the secret government warehouse. It’s a musical melodrama: created in isolation – something we all know so well – a worldview shut out from the world.”
And here comes the lead-single. TOKYO MUSIC EXPERIENCE is an electrical punch-sucker driven by hyperkinetic guitars, manic vocals, and a relentless beat sounding like legendary weirdos Devo are back with some crazed firepower. Expect to be totally puzzled after just one spin.
Maybe you’ll get lost in translation but never in Rats On Rafts‘ music…
