Acoustic guitars meet synthetic bass. Melancholic piano sounds meet intricate beats.

RATS AND CHILDREN succeed despite extraordinary arrangements and exceptional sound aesthetics to preserve a certain catchiness. Emphasizing high-contrast and details. Sometimes dreamy and sometimes restless. Supported by a memorable voice, the songs develop an unusual intensity that captivate the listener into their electro-acoustic spell.

What began as a solo project in the home studio that has grown to a sound mighty band in the renowned Hamburg Popkurs. Since then, the four musicians have formulated a vision that they will present to the audience this April / May on their tour in Germany. Who doesn’t want to wait for it any longer, can find the band’s first live sessions online.
