Breakout alt. star ratbag is capping off a brilliant 2023 with the release of her debut EP.

Released today (December 8), the four-track offering goes by the name why aren’t you laughing?, and is described as the ‘first full look’ at this exciting new artist – who is joined by fellow mysterious musicians Deemo, Slug, Fritz and Eugene in her band.
