Upon hearing a band is named “Ratboys,” one (especially one of a certain age) might be inclined to picture a group of Punk rockers, or maybe an ‘80s Metal-revival outfit. Don’t be so quick to judge this book by its cover, though. This particular group of Ratboys, a Chicago band fronted by Julia Steiner on vocals, mixes acoustic and electric guitars to make music that’s based in Pop, Rock, and even some roots music. It’s a tuneful, inviting sound, with songs like “MCMXIV” that capture what a warm Spring day in Chicago feels like.
After several Bandcamp releases, Ratboys have recently released their debut album AOID. Selections from this album are playing in rotation and by request on CHIRPradio.org.
