“Meggy being the one song we still play live without De Kift feels like it’s become our own. We wanted to capture the live sound and most of all the energy the song has now grown into. We recorded this song ourselves in the analog studio we have been building for the last half year. Mixed with the great Niek Driesschen to tape once again it would sound best on vinyl! I guess we can say it’s our last piece of the puzzle for De Kift project. Onto a new record!”

Rats On Rafts reveal new version of ‘Meggy’ taken from their 2016 collaborative release with De Kift. Next week they embark on a short tour of Japan with Franz Ferdinand.

Rats On Rafts don’t so much slow down and pull up to their terminal, but rather hammer their foot to the accelerator and drive straight off the end of a cliff.” – Loud & Quiet

“They are one of those bands whose recordings to date bear no relation to how earth shatteringly brilliant they are live.” – Richard Foster, Incendiary Magazine/The Quietus
