RIYL - Blondie, Nikki and the Corvettes, The Ronettes, The Go Go's, Suzi Quatro. Lucy And The Rats return with their second album and produce another fine record of summer-infused power-pop garage full of hooks and harmonies.

Power pop foursome Lucy and the Rats formed after Lucy Ellis moved to London from Melbourne, Australia (where she was part of the Spazzys, a pop-punk three-piece that actually saw their first three singles hit the ARIA Single Chart and their debut album enter the AIR independent chart at No.

1). After several singles and their 2018 debut album, which received lots of praise around the world, Lucy and the Rats are back with their sophomore album Got Lucky.

The arrival of new Lucy and the Rats tunes is always a beloved event for power-pop fans.

And with reason: the band are back with their signature, pure, pop sound and a dozen bittersweet, melodic gems.

You'll hear how Lucy has refined her song writing talents as she's grown into a true master of the pop craft.

This album contains her finest work to date including heartfelt, and absolutely beautiful, pop songs that would have been all over the radio in the early '80s.

This is an album that keeps on giving, and you'd have to have a heart of stone to not be moved by the sounds and words coming out of Lucy's mouth.

And then, of course, there's the punk Rat's brilliant support: Joe the Dog (Los Perros, Johnny Throttle, and every good band), Manu (Thee Tumbitas, Johnny Throttle, Raw Fun, Michael Jackson), and Liam (The Gaggers, Johnny Throttle, Scraps).

That's the brilliance of Lucy and the Rats: Lucy's beautiful voice and pop sensibility supported by a barely-tamed bunch of punks.

A Frankenstein's monster of sounds we all know and love fused together to make something special and unique.

With these punk rock rodents, once you're hooked, there's no turning back.
