Rattle - 29.1.17

Rattle are Katharine Eira Brown and Theresa Wrigley, both on drums and both on vocals. They played their first set at OTO as part of The Ex’s 2016 residency, and returned in 2017 to deliver their gleefully deconstructed and hypnotic songs in support of Sacred Paws. Stripped of ego, spacious and infectious, Rattle make structured minimalism unnerving, awkward, but mainly fun.

"Rattle, however, aren't about racket or ego. When Katharine Elra Brown and Theresa Wrigley sit on their separate thrones, they turn their beats into building blocks. With just two kits and their beguiling voices, the duo have created a jigsaw of a debut – and not one of those frustrating puzzles with 1000 tiny pieces, but a fast-paced game full of constant discovery and reward." - Lee Adcock

RATTLE focus almost exclusively on drums and more drums, beneath a delicate overlay of vocal harmonies and percussive effects. Formed by Katharine Eira Brown (also of Kogumaza) and Theresa Wrigley (also of Fists), Rattle began as an experiment in crafting rich songs and melody using drums and voice alone. Their music weaves and intertwines post-punk, minimalism and experimental rock, through off-kilter rhythms, patterns and counter melodies. They released their debut album, 'Rattle' in August 2016 via Upset The Rhythm and I Own You Records. This led to invitations to support Animal Collective on a short UK tour and The Julie Ruin on their European tour. Their live performances are at once hypnotic, monastic and danceable. The band have just completed their second album in their home town of Nottingham, UK due for release later this year. Cafe Oto have recently released a live recording of the band performing in 2017 and God Unknown Records are releasing a split 7" of Rattle and Xylouris White in May 2018.
