Down the Rabbit-Hole

White Rabbits

It’s shaping up to be a pretty strong year for indie pop. Sure, there’s always a fair amount of good indie pop, often just because there’s such a mass of it released, but proportionally this year seems especially impressive.

White Rabbits, set to release their debut album Fort Nightly, can be counted among those more impressive contributers. Utilizing an interesting amalgam of sounds — from melodic New York garage rock to swaying, piano-driven, calypso-like indie rock — they’ve crafted a somewhat bleak album, highlighted by a few moments of lighthearted pop. “The Plot”, one of Fort Nightly‘s more accessible tracks, is also perhaps the catchiest and most triumphant song on the record. In fact, this song has a habit of getting lodged in my head every time I hear it. The album comes out on May 22nd on Say Hey Records, be sure to check it out.

  2. I disagree with Tony. Mostly because of the who-o-o-oa’s.
