Fruitrat – The Movie

Nibble at the bait (2019)
Feel as a rodent at last, cheated on by the world, getting always the same gnawed apple repackaged for the first time. Every meal becomes a death-trap and, yes, also a confession. Violins, electronics and beats, all very modern, but just a trap. Please let us catch you. Finally admit that you love this band very much. Stream as if there’s no tomorrow. Listen to your vitamin rich healthyness, and don’t be afraid, in retrospect, to deny everything.
Fruitrat 1 New packed: Better, bigger and a earwig (who’s found’em,
get profit)

Fruitrat 1 (2019)
Great humanistic narrative, blues revue, naive chamber music, all in 58 songs. With 16 instruments on the trail of a rodent, with only one microphone the indignation whether its own inadequacy. Raw and accusatory, in front of and behind walls and fences, above and below a confining world, dreamed by powerful men and women, presented by two cunning onomatopoei.
Have fun entertaining and intelligent.
