London's Lucy and the Rats hurl glorious dreamy power-pop Molotov cocktail “On Fire”

Lucy and the Rats have a new video for their track “On Fire” from the band’s upcoming LP Got Lucky out on July 3rd via Stardumb Records, Surfin’ Ki (LP), and Dirty Water Records (CD). Led by Australian vocalist/bassist Lucy Ellis, formerly of the pop-punk outfit The Spazzys, she is joined by guitarists Joe Tolosa and Liam Brody, as well as drummer Manu Santos. Additionally, famed Australian musician and tattoo artist Johnny Casino provides guest guitar work on the upcoming record.

On Fire” burns bright as Lucy extols a love too hot to touch. Brimming with a vintage vibe that might conjure up memories of early-’60s girl group classics like The Crystals or The Ronettes, the song’s chiming, sing-a-long melody finds Lucy and the Rats smoldering with a cool fire. The video for the cut follows suit with archival and B movie scenes straight out of a teen dream from the times.
