Who doesn’t love a bit of quiche? Eat it either hot or cold, with a side salad or chips and peas; the savoury French tart is a treat for the senses. Oh, I haven’t even talked about the different flavours; ham and cheese, tomato and spinach, and vegetable. God! I’m feeling hungry. Fortunately, I have all the ingredients in my house to make a Lorraine. And on top of that, I received a song this morning that will be the perfect accompaniment. The aptly named Quiche have a new single out today called Rat Habits, and it’s a track about self-destruction.
Crap! My quiche is on fire! Oh well, I have a song to review. As I press play on Rat Habits, I immediately become intoxicated. The swaying beat, the flirtatious vocals, and the danceable bass line are all reminders of drunken nights out. The numerous times I consumed alcohol to the point where my actions were horrifically harmful. Then, halfway through the track, the guitar solo washes away any negative thoughts. What is going on here? Is Quiche playing around? No, it’s a perfect breather before Juan Laforet enters once again and sings about terrible life decisions and dreadful relationships.
“Rat Habits is a song I wrote during a prolonged period of self-loathing. The lyrics reflect on self-destructive patterns of spending all of your money, using narcotics and a bad relationship”.
I relate so much to this statement. I’ve been a bastard in the past. I’m not afraid to say it either, and I think that’s why I have such an emotional connection to Quiche and Rat Habits. Yes, it’s a dreamy, psychedelic rock song with Grease-esque harmonies, but if you dig a little deeper, you’ll discover a whole new world full of remorse and guilt. That might sound horrendous, but you need to conquer your inner demons eventually.
Rat Habits by Quiche is out today. Listen to it now on Independent Music News. Right, I need to go to Asda to buy a ham and cheese quiche. Peace.
