RAT FANCY: Suck a Lemon: LP

Mar 20, 2018

Riot grrrl-inspired bubble gum indie pop with a bit of a melancholy undertone. Cute synths give just a bit of that Tegan And Sara So Jealous taste and provides nice interplay with guitar and drums. This album is reminiscent of the sonic feeling of young love and heartache from the late ‘90s / early 2000s—think the But I’m a Cheerleader soundtrack, or the potential She’s All That could have had if a riot grrrl had scored it. The B side of the record is a bit more brooding and bass-heavy, providing a nice contrast from the more straight forward pop on side A. I’m really excited to see what comes out of this band in the future. Also, the line, “I’d rather suck a lemon than talk to you” reminded me to take my vitamin C. Thanks Rat Fancy! –Candace Hansen (HHBTM)
