I'm hard pressed to describe their unique music style, found a very witty description on Blender that I think says it all
"Ratatat lay squealing metal harmonies over choppy Neptunes-style dance thumps, then break into pastoral waves of keyboard tone, riding dub tempos and hip-hop struts. They're crotch-pumping arena pimps and introverted minimalists..."Mike and Evan first met at Skidmore College and wrote and recorded the first album in Evan's Brooklyn apartment. They have toured with Interpol, Clinic, The Killers and Mouse on Mars to name a few. I saw Ratatat when they played Airwaves in 2005 and have listened to their first album regularly since then.
