Genre: Indie Rock

Why We're Excited:

Ratboys' music has a sweet way of leavening its jangly pop-rock — which is already plenty leavened — with a bit of country's soft, lilting twang. In "GM," the band strums its way through a bit of comfort food that conjures a distinctly wistful mood and a vivid sense of place.
