This three-piece lady string band can be a little tricky to fit in a box. Folk and blue grass are terms that just don't cut it when you're hit with the mixture of punk influences, gospel soul and pop sensibilities that make their music shine. The Bats keep everyone in the audience on their toes with songs that swing wildly from tempo to tempo. One moment you'll be fighting back a tear as the heartfelt three-part harmonies drag you into the depths of despair, only to be blown away moments later when they kick it into high gear, playing at a furious breakneck pace. Written from the feminine perspective, the songs are empowering, deeply personal and unapologetic. It's this eclectic sound that prompted one fan to give their style a name of it's very own - Darkgrass. It's the one label the Bats are happy to adopt. Stop by the next time they're playing - it won't take long for you to see just how well it fits.
