Formed with the use of social media during the testing times of the pandemic, South Wales based Ratoon aim to make some noise with a dangerously rebellious sonic concoction of British rock.
Ratoon is composed of Jack Garrett (Lead Singer & Rhythm Guitar), Sam Davies (Lead Guitar), Matti Huxtable (Bass), and Eifion Davies (Drums). The Welsh Valleys have a rich history of producing some of the best bands globally, Ratoon plan to carry on the prestigious heritage.
After being locked down and forced to take their energy out on their instruments, Ratoon were finally able to lock themselves into a recording studio with renowned producer Richard Jackson, the result is nothing short of breathtaking. Ratoon are intent on sharing their music with the world, taking their captivating sound from the Welsh Valleys to audiences across the globe.
The ball is rolling for Ratoon. Their first single, “Last on the beef chain”, released in May of 2022 has received national FM radio play (BBC Radio Wales and Talk Sport) and international internet radio play. It was also well received in stream in streaming channels with inclusion on multiple Spotify playlists. Their first live shows have been equally successful. The first a sell out show and the second sharing a festival stage with Basement Jaxx.
There have been many positive reviews to date with comparisons being drawn to The Black Keys, The Clash, Suede and Green Day. The phenomenon will grow as the attention grows via their social media channels, and this interest will get people through the door to check out the next big thing.
