This track is a big mood. That’s what the kids these days say, right? Anyways, “Rats” is a splash of cold water to the face, a no-nonsense, cut and dry guitar-driven ripper that is made to leave the confines of your earbuds and be blasted at full volume. Richard Vain is a band, not a person. While it initially began as a solo effort, it is now a three piece, featuring ex-members of the Ponys and Bare Mutants. It’s quick and to the point: punk drums, grunge-y guitars tearing it up, vocals not quite at a shout, but spat at you with proper conviction. Perhaps you’ll be like me and turn this one up loud and pretend the world doesn’t exist, if only for two minutes. Night Jammers, Richard Vein’s debut LP, will be out on December 7th on Big Neck Records.
