Rats On Rafts- "The Moon Is Big"

New MusicadminComment

Some energetic and reverb-heavy post-punk from Rotterdam right here with the band Rats On Rafts. They've got a new album out titled the Moon Is Big, and you can grab it on the band's website.

While the band isn't doing anything entirely new with this sound, they are doing a fantastic job of reliving this genre's heyday. "The Moon Is Big" features a drum and bass combo I could see Gang of Four rocking; "Lalalala" has a chorus that sounds a little like a song or two from the Slits; and "Sailor" takes a surprising detour with some saxophone accompaniment.

Definitely a fun listen for post-punk diehards.
