Rats On Rafts Tape Hiss on LP
Self-produced, recorded and mastered with analogue equipment, Rotterdam's rousing Rats On Rafts have moved away from the pop sounds of their first record here refining and emulating the explosive outbursts heard in their recent live shows. Intense with integrity, the structured LP is "sicker and faster - they've sharpened their post-punk razors for the occasion" (Noisey).
Following on from their debut LP The Moon Is Big initially released three years ago via Dutch indie label Subroutine Records, was later given a re-release on TopNotch that saw it receive wider critical acclaim. Their ferocious and intoxicating live shows have seen The Rats gain a legion of fans from Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos, Will Sergeant of Echo & The Bunnymen to Louder Than War/The Membranes' John Robb.
Rats on Rafts are David Fagan (vox/guitar), Arnoud Verheul (guitar), Florian Veenhuis (bass) and Joris Frowein (drums).
