Bacchae – Just a Rat

Bacchae – Just a Rat

Bacchae’s new single “Just a Rat” is a cheeky, bass-driven dance-punk anthem from their forthcoming album “Next Time,” set to release on July 5, 2024, via Get Better Records. Produced by J. Robbins, this track encapsulates the band’s eclectic sound, blending gnarly dissonance, bittersweet choruses, and irresistible hooks.

Since their formation in 2016, Bacchae has been known for their emotionally charged and self-reflective punk music, but “Just a Rat” showcases their ability to inject a bit of humor into their sound. The song imagines the chaotic life of a rat, enjoying the freedom of living off nightclub trash, a metaphor for embracing chaos and unpredictability.

Lyrically, “Just a Rat” delivers both playful threats and introspective reflections, capturing the essence of Bacchae’s unique style. Lines like “We’ve got your house surrounded/ Worse creatures on the planet/ Won’t leave you how we found you/ Best creatures on the planet!” highlight the song’s mischievous spirit.

The band’s upcoming album “Next Time” promises to delve deeper into themes of loss, regret, and the mundane struggles of daily life. Tracks like “Cooler Talk” and “Dead Man” tackle the soul-crushing reality of corporate labor, while others like “Try” and “Wicked Fountain” explore loneliness and dystopian existence.

Bacchae’s ability to mix punk, post-punk, and eclectic influences ensures that there is something for everyone in their music. With “Just a Rat,” they not only offer a fun, danceable tune but also a thought-provoking piece that resonates with the listener on multiple levels. As they prepare to release “Next Time,” Bacchae continue to push boundaries and defy expectations, making them a band to watch in 2024.
