Rats On Rafts releaseparty
One of the most popular bands of the moment comes from our own city: Rats On Rafts. The band recently played with Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand at the festival Into The Great Wide Open. They are nominated for the 3voor12 Award for Best Dutch Album which they might win today… And tomorrow, Friday 21 September at 22:15, they present their new single Emma-Sofia during festival ‘De Keuze’ in the Rotterdamse Schouwburg. Durring this release party the limited edition (only 100 copies!) will be for sale. Entrance is free!
For those who missed it: Rats is inspired by British wave and post-punk bands and has a sound that harks back to roughly the period ’79 – ’89, but with their own Rotterdam attitude. Their music shimmers with excitement and urgency. In the media, they are hailed as the Rotterdam response to The Cure, Echo & TheBunnymen and The Fall.
