Bananas: Lucy and the Rats "Girl"
Here it is! It sure didn’t take long for this band to find a label to put out their debut single, and why would it with songs that good?
Two mid-tempo power pop tunes with a bitter-sweet vibe, emphasised by Lucy’s gentle vocals which really carry the emotion of the songs. To back her up, the Rats play effective melodies and resorting to catchy guitar hooks.
While both songs fall in the power pop department, they have slightly different influences. “Girl” has more of a ‘60s feel to it, whereas “Lose My Mind” goes more for a ‘70s pop punk sound. Look out for their upcoming second single on Italy’s Surfin’ Ki label.
