Marcus Lives, and So Does GoldRat

artist: Gold Rat | genre: punk, rock | label: unsigned

listen now: Marcus Lives

Our friends at GoldRat have sent us a new song, just in time for summer.  “Marcus Lives” effortlessly flips the switch from angular guitar rock to straight ahead pounder.  I dug GoldRat the first time around, but in the short time that’s passed, I’m impressed with the strides they’ve made.  Their sound is tighter and more confident and I love their ability to go to the edge of completely losing their minds, but remain just short of bedlam.  The relaxed vibe I dug remains, there’s a smooth chorus, the guitar parts in the bridge are excellent, and it seems like “Marcus Lives” finds another gear around the 1:45 mark.  All of it keeps me excited about GoldRat and lands them on my summer Ipod mix.  Well done, guys.
