Premiere: Rats On Rafts – ‘Some Velvet Morning’

Psychedelic awkward squad from Rotterdam...

Rats On Rafts hail from Rotterdam, a city that has always trod its own path.

The band's 2015 album 'Tape Hiss' was a cult success, an awkwardly endearing piece of oddball psych that was as unsettling as it was melodic.

New single 'Some Velvet Morning' arrives on March 4th, and it's a cover of the Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood classic.

Given an absurdest overhaul by the Dutch troupe, elements of the classic songwriting still remain. Dive in below.

Catch Rats On Rafts at the following shows:

22 Portsmouth Drift Bar
23 Guilford Boilerroom
24 London Tufnell Park
25 Brighton Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar
26 London The Lock Tavern
