Formed in the laundry room of the vocalist’s parents’ house, the band has been hard at work mastering their craft and perfecting their sound since the late 2010’s. With the introduction of Hugo Cooper, the new lead guitarist, came a new, slow, and filthy sound which birthed “Primitive”. Strongly influenced by the mid 90’s stoner rock and grunge scenes, this release is definitely one for fans of Alice In Chains, Fu Manchu and Kyuss. The lyrics, written by the band during a late night drinking session, seem comical but also present the feelings of anxiety, helplessness and confusion experienced by many young people today when every strand of hope is being taken away by the failure of people in places of responsibility.
“The lyrics are easy and memorable – everyone can interpret them in
their own way to fit what they are feeling at that specific moment. It can
be a song which you sing when you’re feeling angry, or when you’re in a
good mood, when you feel like life is ridiculous or that there is no hope
and you just don’t care. That’s why this song always feels good for me. It
adapts to your emotion and you can make it what you want it to be.” –
Konnie, the vocalist.
“The backing vocals sound powerful and big for a reason. We wanted it
to sound like there is a crowd of people standing with us, sharing the
listener’s emotions. Ensure that our fans, although separated, never feel
alone.” – Tom, the bassist and mixing and mastering engineer.
“Can we please skip the part where I give a quote?” – Chugs, the rhythm guitarist.
Rats On Acid’s ‘Primitive’ will be released on Friday 2nd July 2021 on all major streaming platforms.
