Rats With Wings

rats with wings
Rats With Wings (MySpace) is a Brooklyn-based (big surprise there!) quartet that plays, for lack of a better descriptor ... indie pop. At it's core, this stuff is fun and a little folksy, with jazzier drumming, orchestral laptop-generated backing melodies, and a completely sincere and genuine approach as a whole.

At points, the electronic stuff can get a little too cheesy and the vocals a little too Chris Martin-y for me, but hey, maybe that's why these four are so endearing and real. They just released an EP, Tiny Guns, that is chalk-full of their goofy breed of indie pop, that you really ought to check out ...

But first, a couple o' samplers?

Rats With Wings - Hungry Like the Wolf

Rats with Wings seems like the type os band that i would see on imf.com, the international music feed. They kind of remind me of under the influence of giants.

Don't nobody do no research anymore?

Rats With Wings is a long-time-in-the-making hobby-cum-main-concern started by Brendan Fitzpatrick (brother of Pete Fitzpatrick aka The Pee Wee Fist), once-bassist with Clem Snide before Eef had another one of his hissy-ego fits last year.

S'there.

I very much enjoyed the listen. If you can say one thing about Rats with Wings it is that their music certainly does not smell like poop
