These Australians have a weird habit of returning to my blog-zine. Weeping Rat is a mini-ensemble of Australian people whom I’ve written about before. Essentially, they’re a perfect example of what a band actually can do and how not to be a bland mess of influences. Changing themselves over time from a death-rock outfit to a more experimental industrial one. Having released stuff as far back as 2012, now beginning to shape their latest release “Eulogy“. Making a weird kind of transition when they released their two EPs “Forced Vision” and “Fractured Zones“, showcasing two different sides of what was to become a future release. Now they’re limiting themselves to a weird kind of mixture between industrial, cold wave and post-punk – experimenting between the three. Capturing a certain kind of melancholic vibe together with their unusual sounds, a clingy theme of an abrasive singer, with the inspiring percussion.
I got to put up the first single taken from this future release. This particular song is really what defines their new selves. Featuring a meditative rhythm, hiding away a cluster of percussion in what could be referenced as a rain-forest of instruments. At the same time there is a lot of things going on, but it doesn’t really hinder the atmosphere or make it clutter. Well, I put up the song a while ago and I hadn’t written about it until now. So here you are being given the first single from their forthcoming release. The song is called “Eulogy” as you might’ve already found out about. Let’s hope that you listeners enjoy it as well as much as I do.
