To Be Like China Rats

13 Jul

With its punchy punk and surf rock sensibilities, China Rat’s “To Be Like I” is the one essential tune you should have on your summer playlist.

There’s an overall retro feeling to the song, from the sprightly and poppy vocals with just a slight edge, to the barely there lyrics. But even without grandiose poetry, the simplicity of the song harkens back to the days of carefree and reckless music.

And clocking in at just over two minutes, China Rats nail down the perfect rock song like veterans.

Part Beach Boys, and a hefty amount of The Ramones “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend,” “To Be Like I,” and its infectious melody will rattle around in your head long after the song is over.

Blast this tune and have the summer of your life.

Discography: To Be Like I (2012), Don’t Play With Fire (2013).
