Rat Columns


Sometimes We're Friends

Rat Columns

Rat Columns, the ever changing musical project of David West and friends, emerged from the desert outpost of Perth, Western Australia in the late 2000s, influenced by largely anglocentric forms such as post-punk and jangle pop and emitting a steady stream of 7"s, EPs and three full length albums along the way. The songs included on this EP were recorded at the same time as their 2017 album Candle Power in Guildford, Western Australia, in a back shed studio on a rambling riverside property. This recording sees Rat Columns dancing around classicist, German-influenced propulsive guitar pop on "Sometimes We're Friends," an indie pop gossamer ballad involving an "Astral Lover," and an unusual diversion into downer, vaguely Young-esque dirge rock on the cheery "Waiting To Die."
