New single and limited edition vinyl from Rats

Last year saw RATS enjoy a series of unforgettable highlights as they became a hot tip as indie’s next breakthrough band. After opening for Liam Gallagher at the Isle of Wight, the band went on to support modern heroes DMA’S at some huge shows, including arena-sized gigs in Liverpool and London. After releasing track ‘Patsy Decline’ via This Feeling’s brand new record label (in partnership with Warner Music’s ADA) they now release ‘Jenny’ today, days before they will support Liam Gallagher again at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall to raise funds for The Teenage Cancer Trust.

‘Jenny’ mixes timeless jangly indie-pop and Madchester-flavoured psychedelia to reignite the indie anthem tradition for 2022 Frontman Joe Maddocks’ distinctly Scouse vocals paint a narrative that has a darker edge to counter the song’s feelgood flow. Filled with vignettes of local life, it tells the tale of Jenny, a young woman whose ambitions instead spark a downward spiral. 

‘Jenny’ is a song that has everything it takes to inspire a huge audience. Putting a fresh twist on the psychedelic-tinged indie-pop thrills of prime Blur, the anthemic rush of its towering hook will surely be sung back at them at festivals across the land. Joe’s rapidfire delivery echoes Eminem’s rhythmic flow and force of personality as he paints an evocative picture of the darker underbelly of Liverpool.

Joe says, “‘Jenny’ is a story about a student who is forced to go to uni by her parents, but she has bigger dreams that soon turn sour.”
