Bio


Seattle’s wimps are a Seattle-based three-piece comprised of Rachel Ratner (Butts) on guitar and lead vocals, Matt Nyce (Meth Teeth) on bass and backing vocals, and Dave Ramm (The Intelligence) on drums. Wimps serve their own brand of rapid-fire punk with a smattering of lo-fi post punk guitar work to create an angular, slightly off-kilter blast. Ratner lyrically twists otherwise common day-to-day woes into relatable tales of struggle shout-sung call and response stabs that champion boredom, laziness and social anxieties with wiry riffs and punchy bass lines, propelled by the measured rhythms of drummer David Ramm. After gaining local momentum from a self released demo, the band signed with End of Time Records and issued their first LP “Repeat” in 2013. They toured nationwide supporting the album, receiving coverage on This American Life, Pitchfork, SPIN and KEXP. Following their return, they released a 7 inch on micro label Help Yourself Records and a series of self released tapes. In 2015 they partnered with Kill Rock Stars to release “Super Me” is a 5 song cassette EP available August 7th, followed by a full length LP, “Suitcase” which is availabe for pre-sale at http://www.killrockstars.com/suitcase/.
