Rat Tally Unveils New Single ‘Longshot’

    Rat Tally (aka Addy Harris) has shared a new song called ‘Longshot’, which will appear on her forthcoming debut LP, In My Car. Check it out below.

    “This is the opening track and one of my favorites off the record,” Harris explained in a statement. “The song is a lot about anxiety and not being able to stop overthinking, so I wanted the verses to feel tense, lyrically and musically.”

    She continued: “’Longshot’ and ‘In My Car’ have a wall of quadrupled power chord guitars that my producer Max Grazier recorded that just absolutely smack you in the face. When I wrote it I was really obsessively listening to Fountains of Wayne, XTC, and a lot of 90s and early 2000s hits, and I wanted it to have a big stadium rock vibe. I had this hook that I hummed in the demo and thought I would eventually write words to it, but it works so much better as just a melody riding on top of the huge guitars.”

    In My Car, which features guest appearances from Jay Som and Madeline Kenney, is out August 12 via 6131 Records. It includes the previously released single ‘Spinning Wheel’.
