Bleak Stories For Bleak Times – Dutch Art-Rockers RATS ON RAFTS Twist Your Bleak Mind With Their New Album

30 January 2021

Band: RATS ON RAFTS
Who: Mind-boggling art-rockers from The Netherlands

Album: EXPERTS FROM CHAPTER 3: THE MIND RUNS A NET OF RABBIT PATHS – 3rd LP
Released: 29 January 2021

Info: “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. Each song spins a yarn; there are plagues, dreams,
wind and fire, ‘mythical’ characters, and the search for the secret government warehouse. “

Louder Than War wrote: “One of the great contemporary European rock bands.”

Uncut says: “Recalling Brix-era Fall at their most-pop leaning.

Turn Up The Volume: Imagine Bauhaus‘ vox Peter Murphy backed by Siouxsie Sioux‘s
band The Banshees with the cutting edge of a young, confused Nick Cave when he was
in The Birthday Party. Bleak stories for bleak times. Like an unpublished dystopian novel
by George Orwell, titled ‘2021‘. Scary, ominous and pitch-black. Get out of your straitjacket, throw your meds in the dustbin, and fire your shrink. This record will take care of your science-fiction-like nightmares from now on. Rats On Rafts‘ apocalyptic writing is on the wall.
