Preview New White Rabbits Track





Although they have had very little time to write and record new material due to their extensive touring over the past year, White Rabbits have placed a new tune out on the interwebs. It is actually an oldie, but it is new to us.


The New York-based White Rabbits offered up the track "Cotillion Blues" to the MP3 blog/record label RCRD LBL, where it is currently streaming. The band also spoke about the track, where they said: "This is actually a really old song for us. We were playing this while we were still in college, before we moved to the city. Initially, we wanted it to sound like a Ronettes song or something with a big four-on-the-floor kind of stomp. We recorded a version of it back then with handclaps and castanets, the whole deal. It was probably a little heavy-handed, to be honest. We dusted it off about a year ago and decided to rework the feel a little, so we gave it kind of a sleazy, New Orleans shuffle. Our good friend Jon Natchez (of Beirut - ed) and another girl named Elizabeth came in to play horns and we pretty much just let them loose on it. I did the vocals at about three in the morning one night with about two-thirds of a bottle of whiskey in me."
