about

REVIEWS:
"'Insomnia' is just one of the most well made tracks your'e likely to hear this year...Overall I give this debut effort a 9/10, it has extremely slick production, brilliant instrumental work and a twee quality you don't get with a lot of so-called 'indie' music these days."
-Yare Man Revieweth

"Better than 90% of debut albums you'll hear"
- Indie Artist Podcast Episode 6 (Sep 27, 2011)

“[Rat Trap] shines a bright light back on quality folk music and offers a fresh twist on a genre that sometimes goes unnoticed...There is a charming effervescence that seems to radiate from the whole album. And as their album art denotes, there is a carefree lightness that is carried throughout each song, a lightness that can only be achieved through genuine guitar compositions and simple lyrics...One of the best things about summer is the relaxing music that accompanies each summer task. And Rat Trap definitely achieves that sense of “summer reminiscing” that I long for in folk music.”
- The Bay Area Native

"8.5 out of 10!”
- Vorgestellt

"It is an intriguing blend of indie rock, folk and even a bit of post rock. The results are melodic, catchy and have that little extra something that means the songs are insistently hanging around in your head long after you’ve finished listening. Good stuff!"
- The Mad Mackerel
