Ahead of their debut album, Candle Power, Rat Columns have released their first single entitled ‘She Loves The Rain‘. For how much she loves the rain, we equally love this track. The song is a short moment of bliss as it clocks in under three minutes, however it utilizes this time wisely maximising every part of the track making it as engaging as they could. With the beautiful xylophone introduction it sets it up to be a bright song song with a lot high points, which it is. However with the monotone vocals to contrast it you have this unique mix of pop sounds with an lo-fi indie texture to it, which is infectious.
Hopefully the upcoming record will follow this theme as it has the potential to be something special. It’s clear that the band have a unique sound a feel to them and hears to hoping they can stretch it across a whole album and continue to be consistent.
