About this album

“Classics” remains resolutely instrumental, but the band has introduced a wealth of new sounds, from acoustic and slide guitar to sleigh bells and cello. Their vastly improved production and writing makes this record a refinement of their art.

“Ratatat lay squealing metal harmonies over choppy Neptunes-style dance thumps, then break into pastoral waves of keyboard tone, riding dub tempos and hip-hop struts. They’re crotch-pumping arena pimps and introverted minimalists…” - Blender.

“Stroud and Mast have come up with some catchy melodies over light, snappy bass lines in what sounds like something tailored for the headphones” - Urb.

The band has toured with Interpol, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, The Stills, and Mouse On Mars.
