Ratboys Release Video for New Song ‘The Window’

    Ratboys have released ‘The Window’, the title track from their forthcoming LP. Following ‘Black Earth, WI’ and ‘It’s Alive!’, both of which landed on our Best New Songs segment, the new single arrives with a music video directed by John TerEick. Check it out below.

    “I wrote this song a few days after the death of my grandma in June 2020,” the band’s Ratboys’ Julia Steiner said in a statement. “She didn’t have COVID, but because of the pandemic my grandpa wasn’t able to visit her in person at the nursing home to say goodbye. He ended up standing outside her room and saying goodbye through an open window. A lot of the lyrics are direct quotes of things he said to her in those final moments.”

    The Window will be released on August 25 via Topshelf.
