Michael Rattray To Release Dynamic New EP, ‘Silent Battles’

On Monday, April 10, the independent singer songwriter Michael Rattray will release his latest studio endeavor, an eclectic EP entitled ‘Silent Battles.’ The new five track collection offers a compelling insight into Rattray’s music and how its evolved since ‘Human Life,’ his latest record which was lauded as “a magnificently ethereal album full of hope.”

‘Silent Battles’ is an elegant combination of original and cover music, opening with a hauntingly beautiful rendition of Hole’s ‘Malibu.’ Rattray’s signature sound is wrapped in waterfalls of symphonic string sections, atmospheric reverb, and infectiously lovely choruses and hooks. From bright tunes like ‘Little Threads’ perfect for your spring playlist, to introspective ballads like ‘One Million Mangoes,’ the EP is chock-full of diverse, memorable soundscapes.

Rattray’s creative repertoire as an artist is always expanding through unique avenues. He has performed with Belle and Sebastian, Idlewild, The Vaselines, and Edwyn Collins, taken the stage at Scotland’s iconic ‘T in the Park’ music festival, and he toured the UK as support for Sam Brown, with whom he helped work on ‘Smile At Who You Need To.’ Rattray is also an exhibiting visual artist.

Fans can connect with Michael Rattray on his official website and social networking for continued updates on new releases and live dates. ‘Silent Battles’ is due out April 10!
