Chicago’s Ratboys, led by singer/guitarist Julia Steiner and guitarist Dave Sagan, will release its sophomore album entitled “GN” on June 30th (Topshelf Records). Drawing influence from the down-to-earth sincerity and confessional confidence of Kim Deal and Jenny Lewis, the songs on “GN” (aka ‘goodnight’) “largely detail experiences of saying goodbye, finding your way home, and then figuring out what the hell to do once you’re back.” says Steiner.

Following recent tracks “Control” and the heartfelt video for “Elvis Is In The Freezer”, new track “Westside” has just been premiered at The Line of Best Fit, who say; Ratboys make their own brand of indie rock that’s mixed up with just a dash of Country flavouring. New track “Westside” is a stunning example of just how good this mix can be, with a strung-out, dreamy feeling that’s as if the whole track has been dipped in sepia.”
