Following the hushed success of their 2007 debut album Fort Nightly, the 6-piece post-punk outfit known as White Rabbits has climbed out of the borough once again.
The first single ‘Percussion Gun’ off their latest studio outing It’s Frightening really lives up to its name with the twin drums intro pounding away into frantic oblivion. Lead by dual vocalists, Greg Roberts (guitar/vocal) and Steve Patterson (piano/vocal), the song recalls the bygone era of 80s post-punk and features tragic love lyrics (So I’ll just beg, borrow /And steal all your time) which are driven up the wall with an urgent beat.
Fans of …Trail of Dead and Cold War Kids should definitely check this out as should those in need of a good wake up call.
