rattle

This ‘un fair caught us on the back foot, new from Rattle from an incoming full length ‘sequence’ for upset the rhythm, this is the hypnotic ‘signal’. A female duo based in Nottingham utilizing just drums and voices, okay it mightn’t sound at first like the most urgent thing in the world that you need to be listening to right now, but believe you me this works on some many levels it makes your head spin. Tracing a bloodline back to the Slits, the Creatures and perhaps most surprisingly, … and the native hipsters, Rattle despite or should that be, in spite of their disciplined though limited and confined instrumental reliance, weave a deeply mesmeric musical web of earth beat hypnotics which ought first hand, appeal to those much admiring of the foolproof projects and blue tapes imprints. At once primitive and primal, there’s a sense of something deeply pre-natural and lost to time about ‘signal’ its deceptive and sparse post punk acuteness and tribal patterns forging an alluring cocoon of lost in the moment entrancement.
