New wave from Rotterdam, Rats on Rafts are like Gang Of Four with the brewing basslines of Wire and a sauntering bounce all of their own.
Angular guitars grind against a propulsive rhythm section while vocals yawn on top, driving forward with sharp hooks and a boundless, fun, creativity. Releasing debut album The Moon Is Big in 2011, they return this year with new record Tape Hiss, a packed punch of post punk jams.
Support comes from Bristol’s very own Repo Man, a quartet who wail and whine over an immersive and intimidating backdrop of post-punk noise that’s full of thudding drums and experimental breakdowns, all with the promise of breaking back into something Sonic Youth would be proud to call their own.
