With a sound variously described as “post punk indie pop”, “sparklingly melodic” and “epic”, The Ratells are now an established, must-see band in the vibrant South Yorkshire music scene.

Exuberant, high energy sets infused with the band’s infectious buzz have attracted a large and growing fan base to venues across the region, including stand out gigs at a sold out 1500 capacity show at O2 Academy Sheffield, The Plug, The Leadmill, and The Boardwalk.

Recent EPs “Fearful Lullaby” and “The Steelworks Sessions” showcase a matured, nuanced sound influenced by bands such as the Editors and The Arcade Fire.

The band are also well known for their close relationship with fans and relentless self-promotion including guerilla gigs on trams, busking to the queuing public at Tramlines festival and a growing number of music videos and free downloads – available through their BandCamp profile and YouTube page respectively.

Spring 2011 will see the band publicising their recent sessions with hyped Indie Producer David Watts and fans can look forward to a ''big, wall of sound'' feel as the band continue to grow and develop their sound with three new tracks 'Legacy', 'Phobia' and 'Take Aim'.

Catch them soon at gigs throughout the autumn.
