The Rattles Review and Giveaway!

I was recently contacted about doing a review for a new band called The Rattles!



The Rattles are a lively band of furry, family-friendly critters who will release their debut album, 'Rattle On' on August 17th. The colorful quartet have developed a fresh, modern fusion of classic rock and power pop, similar to The Beatles, They Might Be Giants, and The Monkees.

The unique animal collective consists of four stellar musicians and life-long friends – Gus, Kitty, Sal, and Hal – who describe their upcoming release as “the album we were born to make”. From start to finish, ‘RATTLE ON’ provides a solid testament to The Rattles’ undeniable musical ingenuity, jammed with catchy pop melodies and feel-good vibes that are sure to inspire lots of head swaying and booty-shaking.

With their trusty manager Benny and a devoted legion of roadies all named Elvis in tow, The Rattles intend to take their show on the road and connect directly with the people who inspire them most – the fans. With such a distinct background and a colorful collection of grooves, The Rattles are shaping up to be one of the most intriguing new music acts of the year.

Take a listen to the lead single, "Wavy Lane":

Something I like on the site is that they have the store, so you can have the option to buy apparel. I took a look around, and it seems that you can get something for everybody in the family!!
