Daily noise that works faster than any stimulant
2 August 2023
Rough Trade says: “After more than ten years and four studio albums, The Window finally captures Ratboys as they were always meant to be heard, expansive while still intimate, audacious while still tender, the sound of four friends operating as a single, cohesive unit.”
And here’s number 4. CROSSED THE LINE, about meeting a fucking dumb guy
in a basement show, is a juiced pop melody embedded in a riff-rabid exuberance
and whipped-up with reproachful ratgirl vocals and a forthwith infectious refrain.
Bring on the album.
