Rat Boy Delivers Your Mail (Sorta) In “Don’t Hesitate”

You can blame the messenger this time

UK artist Rat Boy explores an alternative career path as the mailman in his new video “Don’t Hesitate” where he does a D- job of delivering letters. Well, at least he tried. The track actually explores the notion of power between outlaws and police in a post-apocalyptic world.” With smashing breakbeats and punk edginess, Rat Boy injects us with another fueling anthem that is also a throwback of old school funk. Watch below:

“We listened to some old funk records then we went into the live room and tried making our own and I was playing bongos on it at the start,” shared Rat Boy. “Liam Haygarth’s playing one of those short-scaled ukulele basses, they have plastic strings so the bass in it sounds crazy. When I went back to England, I had had this drum pack of weird reggae breaks and drum hits. I chopped it up and kind of wanted to go for a weird Rebel MC ‘Street Tuff’ vibe. Tim and I put a sort of Run DMC stabby guitar in which I think really worked.”

Rat Boy will start his North America tour later next month, which also includes the iconic Coachella fest. Make sure to go see him in person:
